This is a delicious spiced cake, which is perfect anytime of the year. The cake is flavoured with blackberry jam and topped with cream cheese icing.
I have made this cake a couple of times and found it to be a really rich moist cake that got me loads of compliments. Do add the raisins and pecan nuts as they massively improve the recipe. You don't need the full quantity of icing though. If you can get fresh blackberries they make great decoration. - 18 Oct 2013

I only used the icing recipe, I have a recipe for my grandma's jam cake. But the icing was really good. - 23 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
