Grandma’s Jam Cake And Frosting

My grandmother passed when I was 16 – she had 6 sisters/SILs and 3 daughters & 2 daughters-in-law and 5 granddaughters…she shared this recipe with NOT A SINGLE ONE of us.

This 2-layer cake was dense/thick but not too heavy. It looked like a spice cake and may have had maple flavoring and walnuts. The frosting was the color of caramel or light-brown and had the consistency of fudge – it would set up with a sugary-crystalization and seal in the cake, so the cake was amazingly moist.

The family has been looking for this recipe or similar for 20 years! She was from Southern Indiana…if that helps. Thanks in advance…Michelle
