Pioneer Swedish Jam Cake


All three of my kids LOVED this cake. They thought it was super delicious! It's a bit heavy like most old fashioned cakes, but the flavor was really nice and the frosting was great! This is a really good pioneer day dessert recipe.

Swedish Jam Cake

1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs, separated
Pinch salt
1 teaspoon soda
1 cup buttermilk
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 cup strawberry jam

Cream butter and sugar; add egg yolks and salt. Mix in soda and buttermilk. Add flour and spices and beat well and add jam. Fold in beaten egg whites. Bake in greased and floured 9x13 pan at 375° F. for 30 to 40 minutes.

Milk Frosting

1 c milk
1/4 c flour
1 c butter at room temperature
1 c granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

Combine milk and flour in small saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Cream butter and sugar until very fluffy. Add vanilla and cooled flour mixture. Continue to beat at medium speed until frosting is very fluffy and sugar is completely dissolved.
