for topping (optional)

  • 5 maraschino cherries or more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons liquid from maraschino cherry jar for a quick, easy glaze


  • Add the dry flour to a large bowl.
  • In a separate large bowl, add the evaporated milk.
  • In a third bowl, place the softened butter, brown sugar and sugar. Mix well to cream the sugar, brown sugar and butter.
  • Add the creamed butter sugar mixture to evporated milk and add vanilla extract too, mix everything to combine well.
  • Add the wet ingredients mixture (evaporated milk mixture with butter and sugar) to the dry flour mixture, stir to form the cake batter.
    Make sure the ingredients are combined evenly and there's no lumps of flour or dry flour left at the bottom of the bowl.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degree Fahrenheit.
  • Prepare a 9 inch cake pan by greasing with little oil or butter and line with a parchment paper.
  • Pour the prepared cake batter to the prepared cake pan.
  • Place the cake pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 35 minutes.
  • Once this is done, increase the oven temperature to 350 degree and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes until the cake is cooked through completely.
    If you are unsure, insert a toothpick through the centre of the cake and it should come out clean.
  • Once the cake is baked, transfer the cake immediately from the hot oven so it won't get over baked.
  • Allow the cake to cool before you slice or frost the cake as you like!


I used a simple cherry decoration using preserved maraschino cherries.
I also glazed the top of the cake with about 2 tablespoons of liquid from the maraschino cheery bottle which worked very well to give a quick, finished look, instead of using sugar syrup or other frostings!
