Categories: Soda pop, Cakes, Desserts
Yield: 8 servings
3 c Sugar
1/2 lb Butter
1/2 c Vegetable Shortening
6 ea Eggs; Large
3 c Cake Flour; Sifted
7 oz Fresca; Soda Pop
1 t Baking Powder
1 t Vanilla Extract
1 T Lemon Rind; Grated
1 T Lime Rind; Grated
2 ea Egg Whites; Large
1 c Sugar
1 T ;Water
2 T Maraschino Cherry Juice
1 T Light Corn Syrup
1/4 t Cream Of Tartar
10 ea Maraschino Cherries; Chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together sugar, butter and
shortening. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each
addition. Add flour and Fresca alternately. Add baking powder and
when mixture is fully creamed, add vanilla and fruit rinds. Pour
into greased and floured 9 X 13-inch Cake Pan. Bake 1 hour or until
cake tester comes out clean. FROSTING: Mix all ingredients except
cherries and beat constantly while heating in the top of a double
boiler. When thoroughly mixed, thick, and spreadable, frost cake.
Decorate top of cake with chopped maraschino cherries. NOTE: Since
Fresca is available only in limited areas if at all, 7-up may be a
good substitution, or any lemon-lime drink. Also, since the problem
with the cherries has been resolved with a different food coloring,
you may use the new ones or use gum drops instead for the garnish.
Syrup from a can of dark cherries might be substituted for the
Maraschino cherry syrup.
