Christmas Bread

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season! I wanted to re-post this Christmas Bread that I've been making forever, it's full of cheerful colors and big seasonal flavors! Maraschino cherries, carrots, coconut and cloves come together for a loaf of quick bread that's perfect with tea or coffee. And mini-loaves make great last minute gifts too:@)
Cooled and wrapped well this is even better the next day!
