As a kid, Cherry Chip Cake was one of my favorites

  • For the Maraschino Cake:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (I prefer unbleached flour)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup maraschino cherry juice
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons flour for sprinkling over diced cherries
  • 10 oz bottle maraschino cherries, finely chopped (equals about 8 oz. cherries)
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Cherry Concentrate (optional: I buy this, online, from King Arthur Flour)
  • Drop or two of red food coloring, or Americolor Deep Pink food coloring gel *optional (NOTE: I didn't use this, and the cake turned out a pretty pink)
  • 4 egg whites, beaten to stiff peaks
  • Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting:
  • 5 egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 pound (4 sticks) unsalted butter, cubed, at room temperature
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
  • TIP: I make a lot of egg custard ice cream, so don't throw away the egg whites after you separate the eggs. I freeze my egg whites. I used thawed egg whites for both recipes, and the results were great!
