  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 lime zested
  • 1 lime juiced
  • cups plain greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 21 ounces cherry pie filling (1 can)


  • 2 limes juiced
  • 2 limes zested
  • 1 Tablespoon butter softened
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 2-3 cups powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease two loaf pans (9 inches).
  • In a medium sized bowl, beat together sugar, butter and eggs.
  • Beat in vanilla, lime zest, and lime juice.
  • Fold in Greek Yogurt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Split dough into four parts.
  • Place 1/4 of the dough into the bottom of each bread pan.
  • Spoon 1/2 can of cherry pie filling into each bread pan.
  • Top the cherry pie filling with remaining dough in each pan. It's okay if some of the dough and cherry filling mix together.
  • Bake 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from center of the bread.
  • Remove bread from oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes.
  • For the frosting (while bread is cooling):
  • In a bowl, beat or whisk together butter, milk, vanilla, and lime juice.
  • Slowly add in powdered sugar until you have reached your desired consistency.
  • Remove bread from pan, and drizzle or pour frosting over the top of the bread.
  • Slice, serve, and enjoy!
