How to Make Blackberry Jam Cake with Caramel Icing
- Add the brown sugar, butter, and blackberry jam to the egg yolks, and stir together thoroughly. Stir in the buttermilk. Add the flour mixture.
Beat the egg whites until they turn white but are loose and runny, not too "airy." Fold the egg whites into the batter. Then mix the nuts and raisins into final mixture blending only enough so that they are equally distributed in the batter.
- Remove the pan from the oven and let the cake cool for about 10 minutes in the pan. Then loosen the cake from the sides of the pan by running a knife around the edge. Invert a cake plate over the pan, and invert the two together. Lift off the tube pan.
- Caramel Icing:
8 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 cups dark brown sugar, packed
Mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the icing is well blended. Remove from the heat and drizzle over cake while still warm. You can make the icing as thick as you like.
