Cardamom Cake with Mulled Wine Jam #CakeSliceBakers

This month for the Cake Slice Bakers, chose the Cardamom Cake with Mulled Wine Jam.  I had a little bit of a problem getting the jam to firm up, likely because I didn't cook it long enough.  I added some pectin and reboiled to thicken it up.

The cake was good, but the jam was delicious.  I've enjoyed the leftovers on toast, and I would make more to give away.

    Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is The New Way To Cake by Benjamina Ebuehi. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes! Follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the thumbnail pictures below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details. The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.
    It is a new year and a new book - The New Way To Cake - and our choices for February 2020 were ~

      1. What a gorgeous finished cake! The crumb looks perfect.

      2. I am going to have to make this jam - it sounds amazing!!

      3. I like the little pile of fruit on top. Looks luscious!

      4. I would also like to make this jam. My husband will not deter from his favorite blueberry jam but I may be able to convince him with this one. I can only imagine how good it is.
