My aunt makes the best homemade blackberry preserves. I use her jam to make my jam cakes. But this recipe will definitely be used again. I took it to work and it went quickly. Thank you


I like that the chocolate is subtle. The blackberry was also subtle and I wish that flavor had come out more - that's one reason I picked the recipe. It was OK but nothing really exciting. I think I'd probably prefer like a spice cake or something. I did not use any frosting at all because I don't like super sweet things and the cake is enough. (And I don't think caramel would have been very good.)


Great recipe! I used blueberry preserves in the place of blackberry and iced it with Caramel Frosting III- delicious! I baked the cake in miniature springform pans (reduced baking time to 35-40 minutes), and it worked very nicely.
