Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour 3 8-inch cake pans.
  2. Mix flour, soda, cloves, and cinnamon; add 1 cup raisins, 1 cup nuts, and 1 cup coconut and mix well. Set aside.
  3. Cream 2 cups sugar and 1 1/2 cups butter. Stir in jam. Add buttermilk alternately with flour mixture, mixing with a spoon, until all is used up, ending with flour mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they hold a peak. Fold into other mixture. Pour into prepared cake pans.
  5. Bake approximately 30 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Cool and frost.
  6. To make frosting: mix 4 egg yolks until they are broken up and smooth, add 1/2 cup evaporated milk and mix together until the eggs yolks are mixed well with milk. Add rest of evaporated milk, 2 cups sugar, and 1/2 cup butter. Cook until thick and remove from heat. Stir in 2 cups nuts, 2 cups raisins, and 2 cups coconut. Cool slightly while beating mixture with a spoon. Spread on cooled cake.

I took this to my favorite charity's first ever CAKE AUCTION.People were bidding like crazy. The cake finally went for $51.25. I guess that says something about this fabulously unique and tasty treat! Thanks for sharing Glenda.

Really good fruity cake. More work than I usually like to put in (I'm seriously into one-pot cookery!). Icing too sweet for me but made it look really impressive. Well liked by everyone who tasted it.
