This bread is more dessert than breakfast, full of sweet chocolate chips and dried cherries, and topped with a sugared-almond topping. It makes a fantastic gift for holiday giving.

Mine took way longer than an hour, to the point where the sides and almonds on top were almost burnt but I could still see uncooked batter through the top crack. Mine looks nothing like the picture, it’s way darker and the top is way more raised... could be my oven or the pan I used (glass). Although I’ve never experienced this problem before.
A new favorite at our house--our whole family loved it at first sight and thought the almond topping was pretty. I got an "A" for presentation. I especially appreciate the simple, straightforward flavors in this cake and the absence of spices. All you get is simple chocolate-cherry goodness.
Did not have chocolate chips on hand so substituted coconut and some almond flakes instead. Everyone loved the cake as it is not too sweet. I will definately be making this recipe again.
