Spicy ginger and sweet peach jam combine together in this Bundt cake to make a dessert that is absolutely heavenly as well as comforting.

Cake for breakfast is totally allowable if it’s a jam cake. After all, you’d put jam on your toast and never think twice about it, so why not cake? With this sweet and spicy cake, breakfast will definitely become a meal you look forward to, even if it means you do have to drag yourself reluctantly out of bed and downstairs to enjoy it.

Small-Batch Ginger & Peach Jam

Couldn’t we all use a little help getting out of bed? I know I could use something new and exciting to wake up to besides Brenna screaming like a rabid psychotic fox in heat, experiencing a full moon, while simultaneously getting its tail slammed in a car door. Yes, that’s pretty much how I wake up every day. Is it any wonder why I look forward to cake for breakfast?

Improvements:

  • Use your favorite jam in this cake recipe.
  • This Nordic Ware Jubilee Bundt Pan is the one I used to make this gorgeous cake. You can use any Bundt pan to make this jam cake, however, this particular one helps to hold the decorative jam topping better. If your cake is not holding the topping well, you can always serve it on the side.
  • Serve this sweet jam cake with vanilla ice cream.
