Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch pan.

  • In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Stir in the flour and milk, alternating so the dough does not become too stiff or too runny. Mix in vanilla. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the center springs back when pressed lightly. Spread the raspberry jelly over the cake while it is warm, but not hot, so it will soak into the cake.

This is almost like my Mama Dollie's jelly cake. We've only used apple jelly whipped together with a little melted butter for the icing. Also, we poked a few holes in the cake with a fork to allow the jelly to ooze into the cake. Talking 'bout good! Read More

Also since I don't have a lot of time I think I will use a cake mix preferably a butter-recipe type...it should turn out great. I'll let you all know after Thanksgiving. Read More
