  • 1
    Heat oven to 325°F. Generously spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with cooking spray with flour.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, milk, melted butter and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl constantly. Increase speed to medium; beat 2 minutes. Pour batter into pan.
  • 3
    Bake 38 to 43 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 15 minutes. While still in pan, poke holes in cake with end of wooden spoon, 2 inches deep and 1/2 inch apart down the middle of the cake, leaving 1-inch border on either side of the pan. Use wet paper towel to wipe ends of spoon after each poke.
  • 4
    In small microwavable measuring cup, heat jam uncovered on High 30 seconds. Stir and continue to microwave in 15-second increments, stirring after each, until jam is hot and pourable, about 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds.
  • 5
    Pour jam into holes in cake. Cool cake in pan 1 hour. Run metal spatula around outer and inside edges of pan to loosen cake. Remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Transfer to serving platter.
  • 6
    In small bowl, beat Glaze ingredients with whisk until smooth; add additional milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until thin glaze consistency. Use pastry brush to brush half the glaze evenly over entire surface of cake. Let stand 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining half of glaze.

Expert Tips

  • For perfect pokes, measure and place a piece of tape 2 inches from the top of the handle. This will ensure all pokes are the same depth.
  • Wipe your wooden spoon off after each poke to keep the holes separated. If crumbs build up, the holes will start to get bigger and take in too much jam, which will throw off the ratio of cake to jam and make the cake harder to cut into neat slices.
  • Serve this at brunch alongside coffee, after dinner with ice cream on top, or any time in between.
