Ingredients

For the bread:

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 limes, zested (save juice)
  • 1 ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling

For the glaze:

  • 3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 1 lime, zested
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla. Add vlour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and lime zest. Slowly beat in sour cream.
  2. Grease two 9inch loaf pans generously. Spoon over half the batter evenly to each pan. Divide pie filling evenly between pans, spooning it over the batter. Top with the remaining bread batter. It's okay if it doesn't cover the cherry filling completely.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 60-70 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Then remove from pan and cool completely before adding glaze.
  4. For the glaze, whisk the powdered sugar with lime juice until smooth. Pour over tops of bread. In a small bowl, combine the lime zest with granulated sugar until crumbly. Sprinkle over glaze. Allow to set about 15-20 minutes before wrapping. ENJOY.
