This is wonderful. Baked 3 layers and split in half, used jam inbetween each. The cake stays moist and delicious with all that goodness soaking into the layers. I am going to try using the jam on chocolate layers, I think that would be delicious. Also, since this is fresh strawberry season in Georgia, I am freezing a couple of batches in order to have this year round.
