Here's a Jelly Cake Recipe you might want to try:
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-1/3 cups sifted flour, preferably cake flour
  • Dash of baking soda
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) plus 1 teaspoon butter, softened
  • 2-2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups (one 12-ounce jar) strawberry jelly,
         or blackberry or raspberry jam

Heat the oven to 325 degrees F, and grease and flour three 8-inch or two 9-inch round cake pans.


Combine the salt with about 2-2/3 cups of the flour in a medium bowl, and stir with a fork to mix well. Combine the baking soda, baking powder, and the remaining 2/3 cup of flour in a small bowl, and stir well.


Cream the butter, sugar, and oil with a mixer at medium speed until creamy, with no gritty signs of sugar. Add the eggs, beating for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the flour-salt mixture in 3 batches, alternating with the milk. Gently fold in the flour-baking soda-baking powder mixture, and stir just until the flour disappears.


Pour into the prepared pans. Bake at 325 degrees F for 35 to 30 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and springs back when touched lightly in the center. Cool in the pans on a wire rack or a folded kitchen towel for 10 minutes. Then turn the cakes out onto wire racks or plates, and place them top side up to cool completely.


To finish the cake, combine the confectioners' sugar and jelly in a medium bowl and stir with a fork until all the lumps disappear. Place one layer, top side down, on a serving plate or a cake stand, and spread a third of the jelly icing over it thickly. Repeat with the second layer. Place the final layer on the cake, top side up, and ice it with the remaining jelly icing. Allow the icing to run down the sides of the cake.

Is it possible It's made with crepes.In Hungary this is made by putting crepes stacked with jelly between the crepes and then it is sliced like a cake? some put chocolate between the crepes.
