    I notice that most everyone is opting for the sour cherry version of this one! I made one for Christmas using challah with raisins if anyone is interested in that one. It was delicious! I made one this weekend using sourdough. It was great! I've come to believe that you can use ANY bread in this ultimate dessert comfort food and it'll be just fine. Thanks for your 5s, my friends!
