DIRECTIONS

  • Cake.
  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Grease and flour pans (two 9 inch round pans – I have used larger pans, and cupcakes – just adjust the cooking time accordingly).
  • Combine dry ingredients.
  • Mix in all wet ingredients except for the boiling water – beat at medium speed for about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in boiling water – the batter will be very thin; this is not a mistake.
  • Bake in prepared pans for 30 – 35 minutes or until toothpick stuck in middle comes out clean.
  • Cool on rack 10 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and cool completely on rack.
  • Frosting.
  • Combine melted butter with cocoa.
  • Add sugar and milk alternately, beating on medium speed until desired consistency is reached.
  • Stir in vanilla.
  • Filling.
  • Stir the vanilla into the preserves until its smooth.
  • Assembly.
  • Spread Raspberry jam between cake layers.
  • Frost completely cooled cake.
  • MMM-MMMM So good!
