“A very cherry cake with maraschino cherries and red food color for that extra burst of color. Try it with Fluffy Boiled Icing.” - by GERAL1012
Original recipe yields 2 - 9 inch pans
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

"I altered this recipe slightly, and created a cake I was very happy with. I thought the butter flavor might compete with the cherry flavor, so I used 1/2 cup Crisco instead of 1/2 cup of the butter. I..." See more also added about 1/8 cup extra cherry juice because the batter's cherry flavor wasn't strong enough for me. The cake turned out nice and moist. In a bundt pan, it took about 50 minutes to bake. It still barely had enough cherry flavor for me, but everyone who tried it liked it. The texture was great. In the future, I would use almond flavor instead of vanilla (but maybe only 2 tsp so it's not overpowering). Also, I would at least double the amount of cherry pieces--the pieces were few and far between. Overall, a great cake that's easy to make!"
"I was hesitant to try a cake recipe calling for 3 tablespoons of baking powder. I should have trusted my instincts, because half of the cake batter ended up overflowing onto the bottom of my oven. Per..." See morehaps it was supposed to be 3 teaspoons?? Very disappointing and a big mess to clean up!"
