This Kentucky jam cake is a spice cake with blackberry jam, frosted with caramel frosting or a cream cheese frosting.

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces (1 cup) butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup seedless blackberry jam
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup chopped raisins or dates

Preparation:

Cream butter and sugar until light. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Combine flour, soda, salt, and spices in a separate bowl; add to the first mixture alternately with buttermilk; beating well after each addition.

Blend in the jam, chopped pecans, and raisins or dates. Pour into 3 round greased and floured 8 to 9-inch cake pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a cake tester or wooden pick comes out clean when inserted in center. Cool in pans on racks for 15 minutes. Carefully invert onto racks to cool completely.
