The cake was so delicious I feel I just HAVE to share the recipe with you guys!
1/2 cup chopped cherries
1 1/2 cups coconut
2 1/4 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
6 egg whites
How to make:
Prepare fruits. Measure the sifted flour and reserve a few tablespoons to dredge fruit. Sift remaining flour into a bowl with baking powder and salt. In mixing bowl cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in sifted dry ingredients, alternating with the milk. Beat well and add the dredged fruit.
Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter.
Line a greased loaf pan with waxed paper or parchment paper and grease the paper. Spoon batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 300° for about 90 minutes. Enjoy!
While our meeting was held indoors, we were blessed with fantastic weather and I was able to give the ladies a tour of my garden. I know it looks like the sun is shining in this photo but it was REALLY COLD! Winter is on its way to the Mid-west!
