Notes if you want to lower calories:
Your cake batter: You may take the sugar down to ½ cup (125 ml) or (118.875 g) to reduce sweetness and calories but remember in cake formulas flour equals weight of sugar. Do not drop sugar by more than 10 – 20% the weight of flour
Jam: You might need a little more if manufacturer has watered it down.
Adding sugar and butter to sauce: Add to taste. If prefer you may add less sugar or up to 250 ml if dough has not been made too sweet. – You may reduce butter in sauce down to 115 g or even right down to 30 g if you wish. So just add to taste.
