This is an old recipe from my childhood hometown in Southern Indiana.

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts
3 tsp melted shortening (I update with canola oil!)
1/2 cup cherry juice
1/2 cup Milnot (evaporated milk)
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup chopped maraschino cherries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 9-inch loaf pan; set aside.

Sift the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar) together; add nuts.

Mix the liquids (shortening/oil, juice, milk) and egg together; add the cherries.  Blend the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients just until moistened.  Bake in prepared loaf pan for about an hour at 350 degrees, or until done.
