    Very nice cake, would never have thought to use brazil nuts whole, didnt last long enough to keep in fridge!  -  23 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have been looking for this recipe for a while. It is wonderful!!! Very nice presentation when sliced as the cherries are bright, and this is VERY good. Trust me!  -  20 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Perfect! I used whole brazil nuts, pecans, and chopped almonds. I doubled the recipe to make 2 loaves. I followed the recipe exactly. It was a long 1 hour and 45 minutes waiting for it to bake, but after 30 minutes of cooling I served it to my family and guests and everyone loved it. I'll definitely make this again!  -  16 Mar 2014  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
