Cherry Almond Loaf
1/4 cup Butter - melted
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon Almond Extract
1/2 cup Honey
1 1/2 cups Raw Almonds - crushed (not slivers, not chopped and not meal)
2 cups Whole Tart Cherries (I used frozen - thawed in the microwave)
2 Large Eggs
1 tablespoon of Ground Flax (Flax Meal)
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
Melt your butter in the microwave safe Pyrex measuring cup.
Add your extracts and honey. Stir.
Crush your raw almonds (I used a plastic zip bag and a flat mallet) Put a towel under your bag - helps to cut down on the noise - thank you bearwiskers.
Add the almonds to the bowl, stir.
Add the defrosted or fresh pitted cherries to the bowl, stir.
Stir in the eggs. Stir in the Ground Flax.
I put the cup of flour on top along with the baking powder - stir into the mixture.
Yes, it's thick.
If you get the mixture on the parchment paper that hangs over - just wipe it off with a damp paper towel.
I baked my loaf for 60 minutes at 350 degrees.
Stick a tooth pick in the center - it's clean, it's done.
