  • In a mixing bowl, stir shortening to soften. Sift in flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add 3/4 cup of the milk and the flavorings, and mix until all flour is dampened. Beat well, with an electric mixer if possible. Add unbeaten egg whites and remaining milk, and beat well. Stir in nuts and cherries. Pour batter into prepared pans.

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely. Fill and frost with Seven Minute Frosting, and decorate with additional maraschino cherry halves.

Baked this for my daughter's birthday. The whole family loved it. I greased and floured the pans instead of using parchment paper. An excellent recipe and will use again. Read More
