  • 150g butter, softened
  • 150g golden caster sugar + 1 tbsp
  • 3 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g ground almonds

  • 200g Waitrose Sweet & Juicy Cherries, pitted and roughly chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Grease and base line a 900g loaf tin.

  2. Whisk the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, then whisk in the eggs, one at a time.
