  1. Soak raisins in pineapple and juice several hours or overnight.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add jam and buttermilk; beat until well blended. Sift together dry ingredients; add to batter. Beat on low just until combined. Stir in the raisins, pineapple and pecans.
  3. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks.
  4. For icing, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat. Cool just until warm; beat in enough confectioners' sugar until icing achieves spreading consistency. Add more sugar for thicker icing; more milk to thin it. Frost cooled cake. Yield: 12-16 servings.
