      The only jam cake I had ever had was a spice type cake filled with jam so I was nervous about putting jam IN the cake, but I decided to go for it anyway, and I'm glad that I did. I love the blackberry flavor in the cake. I used a 10 oz jar of blackberry jam, and did not have quite a liquid cup, but the cake seems fine. Next time I'll buy a second jar to get a full cup and fill the cake with the rest. I frosted the cake with CoffeeB's Caramel Frosting #264630, which complements the cake quite nicely.
      Here are the changes that I made:
      I didn't have any allspice on hand, and I don't like a lot of clove so I used 1.5 tsp cinnamon, .5 tsp clove, 1 tsp ginger, and 3/4 tsp nutmeg. I also found 375 to be a bit high. I baked the cakes at 375 for 20 minutes, lowered the temperature to 350, and baked for another 7 minutes and they were done.
