This old-fashioned blackberry jam cake recipe by Whippoorwill Holler on YouTube is made from scratch and it’s a 3 layer cake. I love old-fashioned recipes because they are passed down from generations and vintage recipes that have their own personal twist to them. This cake is impressive because it has an amazing fruity flavor with a nice moist glaze. The jam keeps the cake moist. This is one of those southern desserts or desserts that your grandma might’ve made. It’s packed full of blackberry flavor and warm spices. I’ve never heard of this type of cake before, but I love fruity cakes.

Next, after the cake has finished baking in the oven for 30 minutes, make the icing while the cake is cooling on the cooling rack. Spread the frosting on the cake and continue until all 3 layers are finished.
