Finally the season for fresh farm picked fruits and with it comes the delima of how to use all these beautiful fruits before they go bad. One of the fruits that go bad really soon is cherries. They are really delicious but had to consume a lot. Not advisable as well as it might lead to frequent visits to the loo :).
So here is a very delicious and convenient way of using the cherries .
A moist quick loaf with sweet cherries.
- Almond: 1 Cup Blanched and finely Ground
- All-purpose Flour: 1 1/4 Cups
- Baking Powder: 1 Tsp
- Unsalted, Softened Butter: 1 Stick
- Sugar: 3/4 Cup
- Large Eggs:3
- Ripe Cherries:2 Cups Pitted and cut Into Quarters
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease an loaf pan In one bowl.
Mix together the flour, salt and baking powder.
In another bowl beat the butter with the sugar at medium speed with a hand or table mixer until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between each.
Add the ground almonds and mix.
Add 1/2 the flour mixture and mix briefly.
Add the rest of the flour mixture and beat just until you can no longer see any flour.
Add the cherries and stir them through the mixture.
Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan and bake for about an hour or until a cake tester comes out clean when inserted into the center.
If the loaf begins to brown too much before it has completed baking, cover it loosely with aluminum foil.
Cool 15 minutes before removing the loaf from the pan slice it and enjoy.
It was an instant hit with Tanmaya. It takes time and some preparation but its delicious.
