Here's one more recipe using one of the summer's best fruits. As summer comes to a close, I get a little sad to say goodbye to fresh cherries, peaches and strawberries. But I also am antsy to bake with pumpkin, apples and pears! But before we switch gears, here's a last cherry recipe.
You don't even need a mixer for this - you can just whip it up with a wooden spoon. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, whole wheat flour,
baking powder and soda, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
In a measuring cup, combine the applesauce, oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Pour this into the flour mixture
and stir until combined. Then add the lightly beaten eggs,
and stir until all the dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in the cherries.
Pour the batter into a greased 9-inch loaf pan
and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan for a few minutes then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
