Questions & Answers - Jam Cake Recipes
I just visited your page. I really did enjoy seeing all of your great recipes. I was wondering if perhaps you might have a recipe for a old-fashion jam cake. I lost my grandmother 8 years ago and her recipe for jam cake was lost. I do know she used to bake it in a iron skillet and that it had caramel icing. They were so good! Well, any way, I have a habit of rambling on about her. Thank you so much for your recipes and hope to hear from you soon.
