A very spicy cake with cinnamon, allspice and cloves. Blackberry jam is stirred in and the cakes are baked in three 9 inch pans. Make some Cream Cheese Frosting to assemble them with.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon ground allspice
- 1 tablespoon ground cloves
- 1 cup seedless blackberry jam
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour 3 (9 inch) pans. Mix together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice and cloves. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in the blackberry jam. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
