  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) box butter recipe cake mix
  • 1 small box instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 1/2 jar maraschino cherries, chopped (optional)


  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped walnuts


  1. Mix all ingredients for bread except cherries, with mixer for three minutes on medium.
  2. Stir in cherries, if using.
  3. Spread 1/2 of the mixture into a large greased and floured loaf pan.
  4. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the topping mixture, then repeat with remaining batter and topping.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55 minutes to 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean. You may need to cover with foil tent for the last 15 minutes so the top does not over-brown.
  6. Remove from the pan onto dish towel and cool.
  7. Drizzle with confectioners' sugar glaze, if desired, when cool.
