How to Store Cherry Bread 

Storing cherry bread is simple, just wrap it with plastic wrap or keep them in an air-tight container, and it will be good at room temperature for upto five days. Or, if you want to store them for more days, keep the container in the refrigerator, and you can eat them for upto 7-10 days. But remember, you only have to store the cherry bread without any topping or glaze.

So, if you have doubts about leftovers, don’t garnish or put glaze all over the bread at once; just on the pieces you will eat now. And store the rest of the pieces just like I said above. Put the glaze on the day you will eat the bread.

Tips and Tricks

  • Ensure the buttermilk and yeast mixture is totally cold for a smooth blending. Warm milk can clump other ingredients dull.
  • If you want the bread to be dairy free, use non-dairy milk or orange juice instead of buttermilk.
  • It’s better to use fresh cherries, but if you don’t have any, you can also use dried or frozen cherries. Use a rubber spatula and gently mix the cherries.
  • If love nutty flavor, add ½ cup of mixed nuts just after adding the cherries, and put some on top.
  • Eat the bread without any glazing if you want to avoid extra calories.
