Looks nice and gooey. Nothing more satisfying than something gooey and sweet!

I ate a 2" square and it is really good. The jam is a little darker and richer than the original zinger but the same tartness. The cake itself is wonderful, I didn't get a pic of it before topping it for the girl who's recipe I used. Best scratch yellow cake I've ever made tho.

I still have plenty left in the fridge LOL my son won't eat the topping, strange boy, and b/f isn't much of a sweet eater. I need to make a plain one for son, and buy a gallon of milk and he will be happy LOL
