Almond is probably one of my favorite flavors. I remember finding a bottle of it in my mother's kitchen cupboard as a kid and wanting to add a bit of it to everything from milkshakes to hot chocolate. The combination of almond and cherries in this bread truly is as the name states . . angelic. I got to share this loaf of bread with my sister and her family as we watched "Music and Lyrics" with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. The almond paste was in my opinion was a little pricey so none of it went to waste. I only need a few tablespoons for the bread so I used the rest of the can up in a batch of almond cookies that were marvelous as well. For me this is a new favorite in my bread repertoire.
This is for all of the romantics out there:
