Moist cake with a very nice texture. Excellent flavor and consistency! The blackberry is not pronounced, but it's among the best spice cakes (which this is, essentially) I've ever sampled. I would stress that if you think of this as a spice cake recipe, you won't be disappointed. Important note: make sure you use a large (12+ cup) bundt pan to prevent overflow. This is an old-fashioned recipe and newer bundt pans tend to be smaller than the ones our grandmothers used.
Blackberry Jam Cake

It doesn't have the taste of a real blackberry jam cake. Blackberry jam out of a jar will not give it the real taste. Real blackberry jam would improve the taste greatly.

This cake doesn't taste anything like blackberry jam. It's more like a spice cake or gingerbread.........very disappointing.

More like a spice cake and only an OK one at that. I was hoping for a vibrant blackberry taste.

I first saw this recipe over a year ago and I finally baked it in December. It is one of the best cakes I have ever eaten. The cake was tender, bursting with layers of flavor and has the added texture of the toasted finely chopped pecans. My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed it as did our guests and I'm going to bake it again this week. (It does taste somewhat like gingerbread, but it isn't nearly that strong.)
