I really love sharing various ways that jam can be used outside of on a piece of toast. I wrote my cookbook “All About the Jam” for that very reason! Jam and preserves are so versatile so here is another recipe where you can incorporate jam or preserves. I love the combination of raspberries and lemonade and this cake captures both flavors perfectly. The cake is a lemon flavor with Raspberry Preserves swirled in the batter and a raspberry preserves glaze on top. This cake is easy to make and is the perfect addition for your next cookout dessert table. To order the raspberry preserves, click the link in the recipe. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did! If you make it, please tag me on social media @spilling_the_sweet_tea.
