  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup + 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg


  • 1/2 cup jam** (more or less to make thin layer,)

**you could use my Homemade Apricot Jam or any Jam of choice.


    • Pre-heat oven to 350° (180° celsius). Grease and flour an 8" pie pan (20 centimeter). A spring form pan is my recommendation.
    • In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, add butter using a pastry blender or fork combine to form a crumbly mixture, add egg and continue to mix only until still crumbly.
    • Add approximately 2/3 of the crumbly mixture to the cake pan, lightly press down on the crumbs to firm it up slightly, spread the jam evenly on top and sprinkle with remaining crumb mixture.
    • Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Let cool. Serve with vanilla ice cream if desired. Enjoy!
