Cherry Garcia Bread

This Cherry Garcia Bread recipe is perfect for when you need a dessert to serve family and friends. It does not take much time to put together, and it tastes great.

Icing Sugar Glaze

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons milk or hot water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Place butter in microwavable dish and place in microwave for one minute to melt butter.

Place the 2 cups powdered icing sugar to a bowl.

Mash with fork to remove any lumps.

Pour the melted butter over the powdered icing sugar.

Stir to combine.

Add in the vanilla extract.

Add the lowest amount of liquid (milk or hot water).

Mix well.

If the mixture seems too thick, then gradually add in more liquid.

Mix well.

The consistency should be sort of watery, so that it is easy to pour.

Starting at one end of the loaf cake, slowly pour the mixture over the cooled loaf cake so that it has the icing cake all over the top of the cake.

Allow to dry.

1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

You can increase the amount of chocolate chips for the drizzle  to 1/2 cup, if you are really fond of chocolate.

Directions

Drizzle loaf cake with the slightly cooled semi-sweet chocolate chips in a zig-zag
