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.
