Never made this bread. But, made a banana bread on Thursday and I melted the butter but forgot to add it to the batter. So, the bread had 2 eggs and 1/2 cup yogurt and bananas. It came out just fine.
Between the liquid from the cherries and the eggs--I would use large eggs it should be fine.

Has anyone made the below bread? A friend wonders about the small amount of liquid for the amount of dry ingredients.

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

1 cup shredded coconut

1 1/2 cups chopped nuts

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dice cherries and reserve cherry juice. Beat sugar and eggs together. Add cherries, coconut and nuts. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture and 2/3 cup reserved cherry juice alternately to the egg mixture. Pour into 2 greased and floured 8 1/2 by 4

1/2 inch loaf pans. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes.

Makes 2 loaves.  Mama's Corner.
