My aunt makes the best homemade blackberry preserves. I use her jam to make my jam cakes. But this recipe will definitely be used again. I took it to work and it went quickly. Thank you

Did not care for the flavor. It tasted rather odd, especially with the caramel frosting. Will not make again.

I used 1 cup of orange marmalade instead of the blackberry jam. Turned out Delicious. It did sink in the middle as someone else mentioned.
