I found a yummy cake recipe that uses jam as a filling between layers. It comes from an old cookbook and doesn't have exact measurements. It says, "one glass of jam between each layer". The layers will be baked in 9-inch pans and I will be using strawberry jam right out of the jar, nothing added to it. How much jam would I need for each layer? I haven't decided how many layers I'm going to make yet so I don't expect a total for the whole cake, just per layer.

Joanie, I presume that you,re making a sponge type cake. You dont need a precise amount of jam.
What difference does it really make? Just spread the jam on the cake to whatever amount looks good to you!
A recipe I have says to, just spread jam to almost the edge of each layer then top with next layer/layers. No speical amount either in mine.
