Beat a quarter of a pound of butter to a cream with a quarter of a pound of castor sugar; when perfectly smooth and white, add, one by one, four eggs, beating the mixture well before adding each one; sprinkle in lastly a quarter of a pound of flour with a teaspoonful of baking powder, and a quarter of a pound of cherries cut in halves.
