DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 200 C/190 C fan/Gas Mark 5. Dust a baking sheet with flour.
  • Sieve together the flour, salt, sugar and bicarbonate of soda. Mix together the buttermilk and milk. Make a well in the centre and pour on the buttermilk mixture. Mix well until the dough is even, and stir in the sour cherries.
  • To shape for cooking, set the dough on a floured surface and turn around in your hands, until you have a neat round shape. Use a floured knife to score the surface into 4 or 6 sections.
  • Transfer to the floured baking sheet and bake for 20 - 25 minutes. Set aside on a rack to cool. Best eaten straight away, but can be stored for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
