Kim Thomas of New Albany's Three – Jam Christmas Jam Cake

Combine in small bowl:

1 cup buttermilk, as fat as you can find (Don't get the low fat, com'on—this cake is a labor of love; do it right…)


2 tsp baking soda

Let rise.

Add 6 eggs, beaten, and cream together well.

SIFT Together:

4 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp allspice

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp nutmeg

Pinch of salt

Add flour mixture to buttermilk mixture. Incorporate gently; don't beat it in like a heathen

THEN ADD:

16 oz blackberry jam

8 oz cherry jam

8 oz fig jam

(NOTE: This is called a “Jam” cake, not a “preserves” cake; use jam; much better)

Dust 1 cup raisins and 1 cup of broken, toasted walnuts in ½ cup flour, and add to batter. RESERVE 2 ½ CUPS OF BATTER FOR ICING. Pour rest into 4 8 inch layer cake pans that have been greased and floured (JOY works great for this).

Bake in 300 degree oven  until toothpick comes out clean; about 1 ½ hours.

ICING:

2 ½ cups cake batter

2 ¼ cups sugar

1 cup evaporated milk

3 tsp butter

Cook until thick, and spread between layers and top and sides of cake. Garnish with whole walnuts if desired
