My friend gave me this recipe 15 years ago and it has been a favorite ever since. We prefer sweet, as opposed to tart, dried cherries. You can also use dried cranberries.
Mix milk and yeast in a small bowl with a fork until frothy, about 5 minutes. Add egg, butter, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add 1 cup flour. Beat for about 5 minutes. Add remaining 2 cups flour; mix until dough comes together.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead until dough is smooth and feels rubbery, about 10 minutes. Add additional flour if needed. Add chocolate chips and cherries; knead just until incorporated.
Cover dough and let rise in a warm, humid area until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch down dough gently. Let rest for 10 minutes. Divide dough in half; shape into loaves. Transfer loaves to a greased baking sheet and let rise again, about 1 hour more.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake in the preheated oven until browned, 20 to 30 minutes.

Eat good breakfast to continue the day has become a fabulous habit. It’s a best way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me energy to make on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the evil of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your digestive system and helps keep you feeling full all day , and not want likely grab a snack out of the street food before lunchtime.
Make fruit a morning habit is simple . Easy as put the sweetness in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the bench next to your cereal bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eating the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
