So it's that time of year again, and only at Christmas time...It's time for homemade Jam cake. This was actually started by my Grandmother, she always made a Jam cake at Christmas time for my Sister (Melissa) since her birthday is on Christmas Eve the Jam cake was her birthday cake. They were the best!! I never could get recipes out of my Grandma, she would say "well I never really measure anything, it's just a little of this and a little of that" After She passed away I found HER Jam Cake recipe written down on a aged yellow piece of paper in her hand writing with some of her recipe books...so once a year I get it out and try (notice I said try to recreate her famous Jam Cake, it is made from scratch and the icing is made from 2 cups of the batter with more sugar added and water added, you have to cook it on med heat and stir till it thickens...(just a side note to Mom I think I got it right this year!) Cassie wanted to try her hand at Jam Cake Making this year and I think we did a pretty good job! (at least Husband said so) I have a picture of Cassie with the cake, and I wanted to include a picture of my Grandma it was just a random picture I picked up to down load....I noticed after I downloaded it on the computer if you look over my grandmothers shoulder on the right there in plain view sets a Jam cake she had made for Christmas!! I never even noticed it until I looked at it on the computer...odd how things like that happen!
