Had some cranberry sauce left over and it had thickend to the consistency of jam. Used it in this cake. Nice combination. You can use any kind of jam you wish. This recipe comes from a little recipe leaflet I bought a long time ago.

    I had some preserved cherries that I was looking to use up. I was thinking with chocolate, it might approach a black forest taste...but not so much. The cake was fine for moistness and texture. Not very sweet, and for the bites with cherry, quite tasty. I also sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top and added a couple of teaspoons of instant coffee to the jam-butter-sugar mixture. I think it is a fine dessert, but not outstanding.

    very easy to make with great results. i baked this in a silicone pan, used plum jam, and cooked it for 30 minutes. i sprinkled confectioners sugar on top and it was a big hit at the office.
