This is an oldie but goodie.I have had this recipe for years and tweaked it to my liking. Very simple ingredients make the best desserts. I love strawberries and since you use jam you can enjoy this cake year round. Its a beautiful cake that can be used for a brunch or a fabulous dessert. The strawberry and cream cheese filling is just sweet enough with the crunchy almond topping.
