I really was looking forward to this cake and I think I really followed the instructions, but it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. That being said, I did make one change because after I had cut in the butter and added the egg, the mixture was still crumbly, all I had left to add was the preserves and I didn't think that would make a batter so I added 1 egg which made it come together. If you update the directions to say that the mixture should be crumbly prior to adding the preserves, then I will try it again with just one egg, but I couldn't see pouring a crumbly mixture into the cake pan. I can see it being a good tea or coffee cake as it is not very sweet. Thanks for the recipe and I hope someone has better luck than I did with it.
