Strawberry Apple Spice Cake

This is an incredibly flavorful moist cake.  There are many different flavors, but all work so well together.  Inspired by a tasteofhome.com recipe, I made a few adjustments to suit our family.  Delicious!

                       

Cake:
3/4 cup butter, softened
1½ cups sugar
1 cup strawberry jam
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/3 cups flour
1½ tsp baking soda
1½ tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp each ground allspice, cloves and cinnamon
1½ cups buttermilk
3/4 cups mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup chopped peeled apple

Preheat oven to 350°.  Grease and flour bundt pan.  In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Mix in strawberry jam, egg, and vanilla.  Combine flour, baking soda and spices; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.  Stir in mini chocolate chips, pecans, and apple.  Pour into prepared bundt pan.  Bake 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack.  Cool completely then glaze.

Glaze:
2 Tbl strawberry jam
1/2 cup powdered sugar

In small bowl, microwave jam for  a few seconds to thin.  Stir in powdered sugar and spread over top of cake.
