With cherry season hitting us at full force, we thought it would be a good idea to incorporate them into a sweet treat! So we went digging into our Bermudian cookbooks and struck gold with a recipe for Surinam Cherry and Walnut bread. We tried it out and loved the end result. If you like a lightly sweet but tart dessert this may be the perfect recipe for you!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
