Spice Cake Made With Jam a Holiday Delight

Holiday spice cake

Holiday Cake With LunaGrown Jam

This wonderful spice cake was given to me as a gift and made with a jar of LunaGrown Fig Jam. I expected it to be tasty but I was amazed at just how delicious it was. It is actually more like winter bread than a cake, which means I won’t feel guilty for eating the whole thing!

It was suggested that I make some caramel icing to enjoy with this treat as it has been traditionally served. However, I have found that plain or just a bit of butter compliments this moist delight聽and it’s the combination of flavors. I have also found that a spoonful of LunaGrown Apple or Pear Jam enhances the subtleties of the delicate spices.

I imagine I will likely eat the majority of this in the morning hours. However, I am considering it with a nice cheese pairing and for the holidays perfect for that adult gathering with wine and fresh fruit.

This spice cake is one of those gifts I wish I had given. It is clear that some considerable thought went into the preparation and choice of ingredients. I am thankful and grateful to be able to share the recipe with you.

This treat is traditionally served with caramel icing. However, plain or just a bit of butter compliments this moist delight聽and its combination of flavors. Of course everything is better with spoonful of LunaGrown jam .
