Add flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk, mixing well after each addition. Gently stir in coconut. Pour into greased 10-inch tube pan or 12-cup fluted tube pan.

Spread over cake. Let stand until glaze is firm.

    This recipe sounds very good but I am also looking for a strawberry jam cake recipe I made years ago that was like a fruitcake with rasins and maybe walnuts. It was delicious. I can't rememeber all the ingredients.

    My late mother always made a blackberry jam cake around the holidays. I, unfortunately, lost her recipe and have not found anyone since that made the recipe as she did. I found this one and was amazed!! Aside from the coconut and subbing blackberry jam for the strawberry jam, it's otherwise identical to my mother's recipe!! Thanks for the opportunity to relive some fond memories and to have this delectable recipe to pass on to my children (and to make for my husband!!)!

    I add 1 cup of my own sourdough starter with this recipe and sometimes I will use different kinds of preserves and flavoring (almond is great) for a change. Either way you make this cake it is well worth the effort!
