The beer gives a richness to the cake. Cherries line the pan with the batter poured on top creating a cherry upside-down cake.

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour, sifted
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup beer, plus 4 Tbsp (divided use)
1 cup maraschino cherries

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour a tube pan or baking mold. Arrange cherries in the bottom and up the sides of the pan. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat eggs until thick and light in color. Beat in sugar a fourth at a time until combined. Add vanilla extract.

Using a large spatula, fold flour mixture into egg and sugar mixture.

Heat beer until bubbles begin to rise around the edge of the pan. Add warm beer along with melted butter to the batter, stirring gently to combine. Pour batter into the prepared pan being careful not to dislodge cherries.

Bake 30 minutes. Cool on rack. Prick the top of the cake with a wooden skewer. Drizzle remaining 4 tablespoons of warm beer over the top of the cake.
