Cherry Bundt With Homemade Maraschino Cherries#BundtBakers

At last it's time to bake a Cherry Cake using my very own Homemade Maraschino Cherries! I made these in June 2019 and refrigerate them.
½ Cup Packed Homemade Maraschino Cherries
1½ Cups All Purpose Flour 
½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
115 Grams Salted Butter
1 Cups Caster Sugar
2 Large Eggs -  separated
1/3 Cup Cherry Syrup 

1/3 Cup Sour Cream
Two drops Pink Color
½ Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
2 Tablespoons All Purpose Flour

Butter a bundt pan well and keep aside.
For the Cherries 

Drain 1 cup of pitted and de-stemmed maraschino cherries from their syrup ( one jar of homemade) and set aside, reserving the syrup for use in this recipe. Letting them sit draining on the counter in a strainer.  Use a few paper towels and pat the cherries somewhat dry, so that they are not dripping in syrup. Finely chop the cherries. 
Sprinkle the fine-chopped cherries  with 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour and stir with a fork to incorporate.

For the Cake Batter
In a  bowl,  beat  the egg whites until light, fluffy and forms soft peaks. 
In a another bowl cream the butter, sugar, till light and creamy, add the egg yolks one at a time and continue to beat till incorporated . Add the essence and mix well, now add the sour cream and continue to beat till incorporated.  Add the flour and cherry syrup little at a time and on low speed continue to beat till the flour and syrup is incorporated. Now fold in the egg whites with a spatula  a little at a time till no white specks are seen and the egg whites are well mixed.

Divide this batter into three parts.
In one part add pink color and the cherries, fold it in well with a spatula till the color is evenly mixed in the batter.

In the prepared bundt pan first add one part of the white batter at the bottom and  level it with a spatuala.  Now spread the cherries pink batter and spread it evenly.  
Pour the remaining white batter and spread it evenly.  
Tap the pan on the work surface lightly and bake it in a preheated oven at 180°C,  for  30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick test inserted in center shows clean.
Cool it completely and then un mold. 
 Enjoy.. this so soft and spongy!! My hubby is pestering me to make this again.
