I made a few changes to this recipe and it turned out really well. I substituted margarine for the oil and added a teaspoon of vanilla flavouring, might use coconut or lemon, as well, next time. I beat the margarine and sugar before adding the eggs. I also cooked it in a heavy bundt pan and it came out completely cooked and golden brown. I almost omitted the milk but realized the batter was too dry so rechecked the ingredient list. I didn't bother with the icing as the jam made it sweet enough. I think it would be great served with whipped cream.
