Maraschino (Birthday) Cherry Cake

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
3 cups sifted flour
3 teas baking powder
4 egg whites (beat and fold)
1 teas vanilla
1 cup maraschino cherries
            (juice also)
1 cup nuts (walnuts)

Cream together the butter and sugar, add the milk.

Mix the flour and baking powder and then add it to the butter, sugar and milk. Fold in egg whites, vanilla, cherries and nuts.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.
This makes a double layer or large loaf cake.
Pink  frosting is best.

This was Bob’s annual Christmas birthday cake growing up at home.
