"This is a moist yellow cake with a jelly spread over the top while warm. It is so moist, it will melt in your mouth! Use your favorite flavor of jelly." — JAYJOSE

This is almost like my Mama Dollie's jelly cake. We've only used apple jelly whipped together with a little melted butter for the icing. Also, we poked a few holes in the cake with a fork to allow the jelly to ooze into the cake. Talking 'bout good!
My Grandmother makes this cake...If you're not a fan of raspberry jelly use, you can substitute it w/ Apple or Apricot (which is used in grandmother's original recipe)
Also, since I don't have a lot of time, I think I will use a cake mix, preferably a butter-recipe type...it should turn out great. I'll let you all know after Thanksgiving.
just like my grandma made
Easy to make and delicious. Very moist
cooking time is off, took 55 minutes in my oven and I have an oven thermometer to make sure it is the right temp. Cake was good though.
nice cake and i added banana and whipping cream for garnish ,,kids loved it
My grandma used to make a similar cake, but used apple jelly. So good!
