Can I add jam to cake batter?
Spoon half of cake batter into prepared pan. Spoon jam over cake batter to within 1/4 inch from sides of pan; lightly swirl into batter with knife. Top with remaining cake batter, spreading evenly over top of jam. Bake 50-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Something dense, like jam, will tend to sink to the bottom in most cake batters. You might pull it off using a stiff batter and folding it carefully. I was hoping for a cake that would have the raspberry jam or flavor imbued into the chocolate as opposed to just a layer on top.
