Cherry Vanilla Cake

Ingredients
1
13 1/2 ounce jar maraschino cherries
1/4
cup milk
2
teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2
cup plus 2 tablespoons cake flour, divided
1
cup sugar
4
teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
 
Pink Ginger Buttercream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 2 8x1 1/2-inch round cake pans; set aside.
  2. Drain juice from cherries, reserving juice (about 3/4 cup juice). Remove any stems from cherries. Chop the cherries and place in a small mixing bowl (you should have about 1 cup chopped cherries).
  3. In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup of the cherry juice, milk, and vanilla; set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl whisk together 2 1/2 cups of the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk mixture and the butter. Beat on low speed until combined. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute, scraping sides of bowl. Add 2 egg whites and beat on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add the remaining egg whites and beat for 30 seconds more.
  5. Add 2 tablespoons flour to the cherries and toss to coat. Fold cherries into batter. Divide batter between prepared pans, spreading evenly. Bake about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely. Frost with Pink Ginger Buttercream.

cup maraschino cherry juice

  1. In a very large mixing bowl beat the butter on medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low and gradually add 6 cups powdered sugar until combined and smooth.
