Recipe by grandma2969
I have not tried this recipe, but it sounded good...Supposedly this is an old Kentucky recipe that is really a cake, but it has always been called a pudding..It is very moist, dark and a bit fruity..and finely grained. The sauce is supposed to be excellent.

- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1 cup blackberry jam
