  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl.
  • Cut in shortening with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cherries and buttermilk, stirring until all ingredients are moistened; dough will be soft with small lumps in it.
  • Turn out on floured surface and knead dough about 1 minute. Shape into an 8” (20 cm) ball, flatten slightly. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake in centre of preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until loaf is light golden and sounds hollow when tapped.
