  1. Blackberry Jam Cake

    Yield: 8 servings

    1 cup Butter; (2 sticks), room
    2 cup Sugar
    6 whole Eggs; room temperature
    1 cup Buttermilk
    4 cup All-purpose flour; sifted
    1 tsp Baking soda
    1/2 tsp Cinnamon
    1/2 tsp Ground cloves
    1 cup Seedless blackberry jam
    1 cup Walnuts; chopped
    1 tsp Vanilla

    3 cup Sugar
    1 cup Whipping cream
    1/2 cup Butter; (1 stick)
    1 cup Seedless blackberry jam
    1 cup Raisins

    For cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour four 8-inch
    cake pans. Cream butter with sugar in large bowl of electric mixer. Add
    eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in buttermilk.
    Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves in another large bowl.
    Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until thoroughly incorporated.
    Stir in jam, nuts, and vanilla. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake until
    tester inserted in centers comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool on

    For Glaze: Combine sugar, whipping cream, and butter in heavy large
    saucepan over medium heat. Stir until syrup reaches 240 degrees on candy
    thermometer (soft-ball stage). Remove from heat and stir in jam and
    raisins. Cool 30 minutes.

    To assemble: Even tops of cake layers with serrated knife. Transfer one
    layer to shallow-rimmed platter. Spoon some of glaze over top. Repeat with
    remaining layers and glaze, allowing glaze to drip down sides and form
    around bottom of cake. Serve same day if possible.
