Jam Cake

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Cindy Lynn

This is another of those cakes passed down from Mom. When DH and I were married, he did not like cake. Mom has a reputation for making fabulous cakes and she converted him! Prep time includes 15 minute cooling time.

Wow, we really enjoyed this cake. It was moist, but not crumbly, and smelled heavenly while baking. I used apricot preserves, and I followed the directions you gave carefully, using a bundt pan. Thanks for sharing this wonderful cake recipe...it will be used again.
