Apple Jam Cake is so good! We loved it so much and were so happy to play with a recipe from Confessions of a Baking Queen, and add in our favorite apple jam included in our gift offerings.

We included Kerber's Farm Apple Jam into this recipe and think it gives it a little extra sweetness we really liked. Plus to knowing our favorite jam in mixed in with all the goodness is a delightful feeling.
