WOW!!! This cake was a huge hit! I served this for a Mother's Day cookout and it was perfect as written. I used 2% milk and Smucker's seedless raspberry jam. I glazed the cake when it was still warm and let it cool on the cooling rack. I served it was berries and whipped cream...like a gourmet shortcake. However, it is wonderful on its own.
