  • Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes or until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating 5 to 7 minutes or until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow disappears.

  • Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt; remove 1/2 cup flour mixture. Gradually add remaining flour mixture to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in lemon and orange rind.

  • Drain raisin mixture, and stir in cherries. Toss raisin mixture with reserved 1/2 cup flour mixture, and fold into batter. Spoon batter into 2 lightly greased 8- x 4-inch loafpans.

  • Bake at 325° for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Brush hot cakes evenly with Orange-Bourbon Glaze until absorbed. Cool in pans 10 minutes; invert cakes onto a wire rack, and cool completely. (Wrap and freeze up to 1 month, if desired.)
