EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

This bread is a nice introduction to cardamom, a spice native to India. Cardamom's spicy ginger-like aroma warms the bread's sweet-tart lemon and cherry flavors.

Use dried cranberries or chopped dates in place of the dried cherries.

Bake this bread to have on hand for holiday entertaining. Let the bread cool completely and wrap it tightly with plastic wrap. Place the wrapped bread in a food storage plastic freezer bag and freeze. One hour before serving, slice the frozen bread and arrange it on a platter.
