Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease well one large bread pan or two small bread pans.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well. Add melted butter to the dry mix until the mixture is crumby or powder dust. Add maraschino cherries and chocolate chips. Mix well into the dry mixture.
In a separate bowl, mix eggs, vanilla extract, cream or milk and sour cream. Mix until smooth and well blended.
