Bread Machine Pink Pandoro

I made the King Arthur Flour "Bread Machine Pandoro", with a few changes that ended up with a pink loaf of bread. Delicious, and Pink!
My changes to the original recipe were, substitute buttermilk for water, add more vanilla extract, add lemon and orange extract, decrease salt slightly, added a little more flour due to extra liquids, substituted dried cranberries and maraschino cherries and maraschino cherry juice from the jar for the raisins.
Bread Machine Pink Pandoro
Large 1 1/2-pound Loaf
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (5 ounces) buttermilk
1/4 cup (1/2 stick, 2 ounces) unsalted butter
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
1/4 teaspoon orange extract
2 large eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute
1 1/4 teaspoons table salt
1/3 cup (2 1/4 ounces) granulated sugar
3 3/4 cups (16 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour (If not using KAF AP flour, use Bread flour)
4 teaspoons instant yeast
1/4 cup (1 1/2 ounces) dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup (2 ounces) maraschino cherries, coarsely chopped, plus 3 Tbsp cherry juice from jar.
Place all of the ingredients, including the dried cranberries, and maraschino cherries, into the pan of your bread machine. Program the machine for Basic White Bread, Light Crust, and press Start. Check the dough with about 10 minutes remaining in the final kneading cycle, and adjust the consistency by adding flour or water as needed; it should be smooth and supple. Allow the machine to complete its cycle, and place the finished bread on a rack to cool.
