Jam Cake -Gluten Free.

I made this for mom's birthday party yesterday.  It was good and moist. 

Jam Cake
3 eggs
3/4 cup softened butter.
1 cup white sugar.
1 cup seedless blackberry jam.
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of Pamela's gluten free flour.

Preheat oven to 350.
Spray or butter a 13 x 9 pan.
Put all ingredients except flour in bowl, mix well.
Add flour a bit at a time. 
Pour batter into baking pan.
Cook for 35 minutes.

Next time I'm leaving out some of that butter, it was a little overly moist, in my opinion, almost like jam brownies.  :-)  No one could tell it was gluten free. 

I served this with a traditional southern brown sugar frosting.

Brown sugar frosting
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp butter

Mix together in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes.  Beat until cooled and pour onto cake.

This icing kind of hardens on the cake.

Next time, I might use cream cheese icing premade.

Today, I made broccoli soup.

It's very good.  I use Zesty Italian dressing instead of the light italian.

I like to eat it with En-R-G crackers.
