2cupswhole wheat flour
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine all of the dry ingredients into a medium mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk. Mix with a wooden spoon until flour is incorporated. Knead a few times by hand if necessary.
Add the cherries and knead to combine. Form a ball from the dough.
Turn the dough out onto the baking sheet and form a 2" thick round loaf. Cut a 1-inch cross through the top of the bread with a sharp or serrated knife.
Bake for 30 minutes and then reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees F for an additional 10 minutes. The bread is done when browned and sounds hollow when tapped.
Allow the bread to cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Wrap in an air-tight to store.
You can make your own buttermilk by adding 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice per cup of milk. Let it sit for about 5 to 10 minutes and then add it according to the recipe instructions.Recipe adapted from The Poco Loco Olsons
