  2. In a medium bowl combine the butter and brown sugar, beat with a mixer until light and creamy. Add the egg and beat until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. Pour the juice from the cherries into a measuring cup, then fill the measuring cup with milk till it reaches the 1 cup mark.
  5. Alternately add the flour mixture and cherry milk to the brown sugar mixture, use a whisk, and stir just until the flour is absorbed, do not over mix.
  6. Chop cherries roughly. Fold the cherries and walnuts into the batter and pour into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  8. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on wire rack. If you can, wrap and let sit over night for best results. Enjoy!
