This Blackberry Jam Cake is for all you fans of this old time recipe. It’s packed full of blackberry flavor and warm spices and has a wonderful creamy caramel icing to complement each layer.
I’m posting this Blackberry Jam Cake per the long-time request of my cousin Teresa, aka Teetle. We both grew up eating this cake, and my mother made it often. I have bittersweet memories of this cake too. It takes me back to a time of picking briary, thorny blackberries out in the heat of the day for hours, only to get up early the next morning and do it all over again. I hated picking blackberries more than you’ll ever know!!
I do love the simplicity of this cake. It’s made with seedless blackberry jam, and don’t let the color of the batter turn you off. Okay, so maybe it’s not the prettiest color for a cake batter, but it’s the taste that counts. Right?
