Pineapple Cherry Zucchini Bread

This recipe makes a super moist and delicious quick bread. Wonderfully served with cream cheese or your favorite jam, jelly or honey. Pineapple cherry zucchini bread also makes great “mini” loaves, which are great for sharing. Each mini loaf would be great wrapped in colored cellophane, tied with a ribbon and given as a gift, as a token of appreciation for a job well done or just to say thanks.

Door County, Cherryland’s Best

In this recipe, Cherrylands Best dried cherries are used to add delicious flavor. Besides Door County’s famous dried montemorency cherries, Cherryland’s Best also sells dried blueberries and cranberries. My personal favorite is called cherry berry mix, a mixture of dried cherries, cranberries and blueberries. If you have never tried cherries from Door County, whether fresh or dried, you need to seriously purchase some.
