I’ve made this yummy recipe every Christmas in my adult life.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
Beat the butter, sugar, and eggs together in a mixing bowl. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and sat, alternating with the eggnog, just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in the pecans, raisins, and cherries until evenly blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven until top is golden and springs back when lightly touched, about 70 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

The quality of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which not always getting bigger as well as clear bread.
To made this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it yesterday , then clear it off the next day.
