This is a super thick batter.  You may need to use your fingers to spread the batter evenly.  I like to get my hand damp and then work the batter into the corners.
Once you've spread the jam out, you can kind of clump the top layer of batter down.  It doesn't need to be perfectly smooth to taste delicious.
You can also substitute any flavor jam in this cake that you like.
