 Ingredients List

  • 3 c Sugar
  • 1/2 c Shortening
  • 1 c Butter
  • 5 Eggs
  • 3 c All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 ts Baking powder
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 2 ts Cherry flavoring
  • 1 c Milk
  • 1/2 c Cherries in juice; chopped


Cream sugar, shortening and butter; add eggs, one at a time. Add flour,
baking powder, salt, and cherry flavoring alternately with milk. Beat until
creamy. Stir in cherries. Bake in greased tube pan at 325 degrees for 1
hour and then increase heat to 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

NOTES : Cherry flavoring has been hard to find. I substitute juice from
the marachino cherries. I also add one tablespoon of vanilla to the recipe.
