Talk about a chunky monkey colossal of a bread. It's thick, dense, sturdy and full. We liked the bread but felt I could have decreased the amount of chocolate chips by 1/2 that it calls for. Loved the fact of mixing the milk, baking soda, vanilla and juice from the maraschino cherries together....what a neat science trick in the kitchen to show my youngest when it grew and foamed up. She thought that was pretty amazing. I will make again but would totally decrease the chocolate chips. Not that I don't love chocolate but the amount with all the other additions was so chunky that in spots where the chips settled, the bread fell apart and hands were covered in chocolate. Tastes great with a pat of butter smeared on to the slices when served. TY Another note, I used 3 smaller loaf pans. But will note, don't use large loaf pans...the batter wont' bake all the way through and will burn on the outside before it gets completely done. Smaller loaf pans and or muffin tins are better.

I love this!!!!!!!! This bread has become a staple for the holidays. I do cut the sugar down by 1 cup and cover the bread with reynolds wrap for the end of the bake time to keep the bread moist.

The dates and coconut added a bit more sweetness to this recipe. We liked it, but I would probably leave out the dates and coconut next time. Thanks for a great recipe!

I had another recipe for Bishop's bread that had almost no liquid. I liked this a lot better. I added a cup of candied cherries to the recipe so each piece would have the cherries in it. Otherwise I wouldn't change a thing.

This was a good start. I left out the dates and coconut. Next time I will add more cherries. My husband wanted more chocolate chips but using less then called for was just fine. I will make again.

A little disappointing, but I may try it again. It had a bit of a flour-y taste so next time I may use a little almond extract to enhance the cherry flavor. Also, my oven baked this in more like an hour not the hour & half or more that the recipe called for. However, I got 3 loaves out of this instead of 2 (..even though I measured my pans and made sure they were 9x5); so if you used bigger loaf pans and got only 2 loaves you might need the extra baking time. Also, mine came out a little crumbly and dry. Maybe it needs more butter or eggs ???

After trying this last Thanksgiving, I made loaves and loaves at Christmastide to take to parties and give as gifts. EVERYONE RAVES about this bread! Very pretty plated, unusual so it stands out from the standard cookies. I cannot recommend this enough! Christine from Texas
