Here goes another week of using jam in your baking. I used to make a lot of things like this when I was a kid because it was an easy way to bake something sweet using ingredients already in the pantry. As an adult, it’s something I can whip up with little notice for a mid week treat or weekend brunch. Here is what you’ll need:
- 3/4 cup (150 g) butter
- 1 teaspoon almond essence
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup (100 g) course coconut flour or dessicated coconut
- 4 tablespoons milk
- 1 3/4 cup (250 g) plain flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 6-7 tablespoons jam
Next, beat the eggs. I prefer doing this in a separate bowl to get them well mixed before I add them in. If you have a mixer, you may not need to do this, but if mixing by hand like myself, this step will help.
Pop it in the oven for 45-55 minutes. The time will really depend on your oven. Just keep an eye on it, and maybe check it at the 40 min mark. Also, if you feel it is browning more than you’d like, move it to the lower shelf or place some foil on top.
The finished product produces a lovely ripple of color in the middle and I may try to do another layer of jam the next time I make this. Since we’ve got a lot of rain in the forecast this weekend, maybe we all should bake up a loaf to say goodbye to summer. Until next time, thanks for reading and Happy Eating!
