FIRST
Make the Maraschino Puree
Buy 3 SIXTEEN ounce jars of Maraschino Cherries, no pits no stems

Take ONE jar and pour the contents into a Vitamix, Blend on high till completely liquid
Save the other jars for later

SECOND
Choose one of 2 Options: Bake or Steam
(the cake above is steamed, so there is no browning and its pretty)

STEAMING
 If you wanna steam it, you will have to make 2 batches of batter at different times cause you can only steam one layer at a time.
Get a giant pot and put some water in it, put the steamer tray/basket/thingy in it and bring the water to a boil

Grease and flour a round cake pan

In a bowl whisk together
1-1/4 cup Flour
1-14 t baking powder
1/2 cup sugar

In another bowl beat together
1/2 stick very softened butter
1 egg, room temp
3/4 cup maraschino puree

Then beat together BOTH and spread into the pan and place on the steamer "thingy" and cover the pot with a clean towel and the lid and steam 25 mins
Remove CAREFULLY and repeat with another batch of batter and pan.
Let both cakes cool completely


BAKING
If you want to bake it
Preheat the oven to 350oF

Grease and flour 2 round cake pans

In a bowl whisk together 
2 1/2 cups flour
2-1/2 t baking powder
1 cup sugar

In another bowl beat together
1 stick butter very softened
2 eggs room temp
1 -1/2 cup maraschino puree

Then beat together BOTH and spread into the pans and place in the oven 25-30 mins until a toothpick inserted in center comes clean
Remove and let both cakes cool completely

THIRD

Dump out the other 2 jars of Maraschino Cherries and reserve the syrup
Brush the cakes with the syrup
Decorate with
Whipping cream whipped with confectioners sugar and Dr Oetker Whip It (stabilizes the cream and allows it to stay stiff and firm for long periods of time) and the rest of the cherries
