Cherry Party Bread

Too luxurious to be a quick bread, but too nutritious to be a cake! Chopped nuts and maraschino cherries make this "bread" as pretty as it is delicious. And thanks to All-Bran® cereal, this treat is also a good source of iron and fiber per serving?but that doesn't mean you can't serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
