Living in New Jersey, we are so lucky to have so many wonderful local farms that can offer fresh produce. As a family, we spend a lot of time in the warm months picking berries.

We look forward to coming home and making jams, baked goods and other delicious recipes with our harvests. We’ve picked strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, this year even cranberries

If you know me, you know I am obsessed with bundt cakes. Bundt cakes and mason jars are my jam. Get it? Jam?

This Berry Pound Cake is a super simple recipe and I know you will love it too.

You are going to love the buttery texture and taste of this Pound Cake. Plus, every single bite offers the sweetness of the berries thanks to the jam swirled in.

Serve this Berry Pound Cake with fresh strawberries and blueberries.

For an added sweetness, add whipped cream.

Here is why I love using a bundt pan for this recipe:

The jam bakes right into the top of the cake, which becomes the bottom, crunch that you get in a bundt pan.

Triple Berry Pound Cake

This is truly the perfect potluck dessert or afternoon tea sweet treat. The jam adds a dimension that will have your guests really wondering what it is.

Variations of my Berry Pound Cake recipe:

  • No bundt pan? No problem! You can use a loaf pan instead. Keep an eye on the pound cake though to make sure it is cooked through. 
  • The best part about this Berry Pound Cake recipe is how versatile it is! You can use any type of berry jam you have on hand.
