Kentucky Cake Recipe for Derby Day


Derby Day is held on the first Saturday in May. Even if you’re not into horseracing, you’ll want to serve traditional Kentucky food on that day; in fact, it’s a great excuse to have a party. This incredible Kentucky Jam Cake is an heirloom recipe from my 92 year old mother-in-law, who has lived in Kentucky her entire life and has been making this cake for over 70 years. She is an amazing cook and every time I make this cake there are lots of raves and no leftovers.

1 teaspoon allspice
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup blackberry jam

6 tablespoons flavored coffee syrup, (blackberry or caramel), blackberry liqueur, or red wine
