DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Sift the 2 cups flour (set aside reserved 1/4 cup for cherries), baking powder, baking soda, and salt together into a bowl.
  • In a second bowl, toss the cherries with the reserved 1/4 cup flour.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter until it is light and fluffy; add the sugar and honey gradually, beating the mixture until it is very light.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time.
  • With mixer at lowest speed, add the flour mixture.
  • Fold the floured cherries into the batter.
  • Turn the batter into a buttered and floured loaf pan, approximately 9 x 5 x 3 inches.
  • Bake the bread in the center of the oven for 1 hour.
  • Cool the loaf for 15 minutes in the pan; unmold the bread on a rack to cool completely.
  • Wrap the cherry bread loaf in plastic wrap and keep for a day before serving for best flavor.
