This is the fourth Christmas that I have made this wonderful cake! My family loves it! I agree that you should use the best jam you can because the flavor combination is fabulous. This cake was very easy to make.

I am surprised at the lower reviews. I wonder if other readers used a less flavorful cocoa or jam. The cake is time-consuming to make, and I am not a fan of sifting flour, but if you assemble right after it cools (do not let it cool on a rack for hours, or it DOES dry out), and if you refrigerate after assembly, it is INCREDIBLY moist. The jam and the frosting make it very moist. Also, the frosting has not been thin for me either of the times that I have made it, and it may not be enough to cover cupcakes, since it does not go in the center layer. The cake is a mild cocoa flavor that really only shines if you have the raspberry and frosting to compliment. But my husband LOVES it.

This recipe was absolutely divine. I made it for my daughter-in-law's birthday and she loved it. It will be in my "favorites" cake file. Very easy to put together.

Why, in the Daily Food Feud competition, is THIS cake rendered the winner when it garnered 994 votes (and 3 stars) to the 1141 votes (and 4 stars) of the German Chocolate Cake? Was the winner a foregone conclusion and the voting did not matter?

I made this cake for my birthday and everyone loved it! The only thing would be that I will add a little more chocolate next time. The cake was very very red and lost the chocolate flavor I was looking for a little more of. But the cake was fluffy and moist and the frosting was absolutely divine! Make sure you use a good jam-that just took mine to the next level. I look forward to making again in the future.

The fist time I made this cake it was a hit with my family, fluffy and moist , I used cream cheese frosting and fresh raspberry between the layers, the combination was out of this world . The only thing that the ingredients made three ( 9 -inch ) trays instead of two trays .
