Betty's Kentucky Jam Cake -- Christmas

Betty demonstrates how to make Jam Cake. This will be one of the desserts on our Christmas table this year. It is a cake that originated in Kentucky (or Tennessee) and is traditionally served with the Christmas dinner.
Blackberry Jam Cake
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs, well beaten
12 ounces blackberry jam (I used spreadable fruit--blackberry.)
1 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1/2 teasapoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup raisins (I used golden raisins.)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar, beating on medium speed of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Set aside. In a medium bowl, combine eggs and jam. Mix well and add to the creamed mixture. Beat well. Combine buttermilk and soda, stirring well. Set aside. In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour, salt, cocoa powder, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and allspice, stirring well. Add dry mixture to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk mixture. Stir in raisins and pecans. Pour batter into three greased and floured 8-inch to 9-inch round cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees (F) for 25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into deepest part comes out clean. Cool in pans on cooling rack. Ice with Caramel Frosting after cake has cooled. Caramel Frosting will be the next video in Betty's Kitchen! Enjoy the cake recipe! --Betty :)
