This eye-catching bread gets its pinkish hue from the maraschino cherries in the dough while the extra sweet taste comes from the white chocolate chips and slivered almonds added into the batter, too.
Be sure to use a sharp knife when cutting the roll lengthwise in half. This will help prevent the filling from pulling on the knife during cutting.
Maraschino cherries can be made from any variety of cherry, but the Royal Ann is most often used. The cherries are pitted and then marinated in a flavored sugar syrup. Almond flavoring is sometimes added to red cherries, and mint flavoring is sometimes added to green cherries. The cherries are then dyed with government-approved red or green dye, so they are safe to eat.
