Best Jam Cake Ever.....

                                    When I first saw this cake in the Taste of the South Magazine
It looked so good I had to try it.

But if your Like me I just always get rid of the
ingredients that I don't think belong
like the raisins and the pecans..

It was a total mess to make
 and as you can see
 it needs to go into 4 cake pans next time.

It was so delicious...

One cake would easily feed 20 guests
Its about 10" tall when frosted,

cake recipe

1 1/2cups soft butter
3 cups sugar
5 lg eggs
4 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp b.soda
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups blackberry jam
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
1 1/4 cups chopped pecans
1 cup raisins

beat sugar and butter till light and fluffy
then eggs one at a time
then flour and soda alternating with the sour cream.
then fold in the rest.
I used freezer jam I like it best.

bake 350 about 40minutes
till a tooth pick comes clean.

is 1- 8ounce cream cheese
beat with 1/2 cup blackberry jam.
Layer this in between the cake layers
 with 2 cups of fresh blackberry
this filling next time I will double it!

Butter cream frosting
2 cups softened Butter
 8 cups powdered sugar
8T heavy whipping cream

frost  and refrigerate
