The Ultimate cake for a wedding.





I soak the cherries in a very large wine jar. And it was left outside the fridge. If you are soaking a smaller portion, you can leave it in the fridge.

Ingredients
250g salted butter(soften in room temperature)
120g fine sugar
4 eggs(room temperature)
200g plain flour

1 can of Dark Sweet cherries(S&W brand)
400ml Cointreau(orange liquor)

Method
1. Drain cherries from the can. Put the cherries in a glass jar to soak with liquor.
2. Leave this jar in the fridge and covered. Soak for at least 7 days.
3. Drain from liquor and leave aside. Do not discard the liquor. You can add 7 Up or Sprite to it to drink.
4. Whip butter and sugar on high speed for 10 minutes.
5. Note that you must whip until the butter look very pale yellow.
6. Then lower the speed, add eggs one at a time
7. Continue to whip for 5 mins.
8. Add flour and continue to whip for 2 to 3 mins or until its evenly mixed.
9. Lastly add the cherries. Do not turn up the speed. Or the cherries will crush.
10. Pour batter into cake pans .
11. Baked in preheated oven 180C for 35 to 40 mins.
12. Leave to cool in the oven. Then removed.
13. Best to eat this after its aged for 1 day.

Hi Gina

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'm keen on trying out so as to use up leftover cherries in my pantry. Just would like to clarify, what size tin did you use to bake the cake (based on the amount of ingredients stated in the recipe)?

Thanks!

For this recipe, you can use a 8inch round cake pan. For the wedding cake, I had to 3 x the recipe and baked in a 12 inch tin.
