1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 egg whites, stiffly beaten

2 egg whites
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup chopped raisins, soaked ten minutes in hot water
3/4 cup sliced maraschino cherry
1 cup chopped nuts

Butter Icing:
1/2 stick butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Cream butter and sugar. Add milk, flour, baking powder, and vanilla, then fold in 6 beaten (soft peaks) egg whites. Bake at 350° in 3 greased 8- or 9-inch cake pans 20–25 minutes. Let cool.

For Filling:
Beat 2 egg whites until very stiff. Very gradually, add the powdered sugar, one tablespoon at a time. Fold in well-drained raisins and cherries; add nuts. Spread Filling between layers. Frost with Butter Icing.

For Butter Icing:
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla together; add just enough milk to make creamy and spreadable.

Add some cherry juice to the Butter Icing to give it a nice pink color as well as a hint of cherry flavor. Lady Baltimore would surely approve.
