A very cherry cake with maraschino cherries and red food color for that extra burst of color. Try it with Fluffy Boiled Icing.

The Extreme Cherry Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon red food color
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup maraschino cherry juice
  • 14 maraschino cherries, chopped

Instructions

    1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 2 – 9 inch round pans. Sift together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.

    2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and red food color. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the cherry juice. Stir in the cherries. Pour batter into prepared pans.

    3 Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
