With that being said, it’s very good. This cake has a light texture and a small crumb. Even though it has strawberry jam in the cake, strawberry is not a prominent flavor. It really has more of a classic vanilla flavor.

Strawberry Jam Pound Cake Tips

  1. Always have your butter and eggs at room temperature.
  2. Use good quality ingredients, no generic brands for baking.
  3. When a recipe calls for eggs, use large eggs unless specified in the recipe
  4. Read all about different flours here.
  5. Measuring flour correctly makes a huge difference when baking. Read the correct way to measure flour here.
  6. A good secret tip if the top of your bundt cake breaks or sticks to your pan, top with a thick ganache to cover it up. This cake didn’t stick, but I have had plenty that did. No one has to know!

    Really enjoyed this cake. Very tasty! Will definitely check out some of your other recipes!

    Curious about step 3 though. It say to beat the butter, oil, yogurt, eggs, sugar and jam all at once? Is that right? I creamed the butter and sugar and then added the rest of the ingredients, eggs one at a time.

    Also can you sub nonfat Greek yogurt and make your buttermilk using whole milk and lemon juice? Or does the recipe need whole milk Greek yogurt and store bought buttermilk?

    Finally, can the cake be frozen?

    1. Yes, pound cake freeze great. You can use nonfat Greek yogurt and make the buttermilk. I would mix it now as you described. This was one of my first pound cake recipes on here and I probably did add everything at once. 🤦‍♀️ I’m sure it would be fluffier mixed as you did.
