1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1. Preheat over to 325 degrees. Grease and line with wax paper two loaf pans (7 1/2x3 1/2 inches).

In a large bowl of electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light. Add egg and beat until blended. Alternately beat in half of the flour then half the applesauce, then beat in remaining flour and applesauce. Fold in dried cherries and walnuts. Spoon into prepared pans.
