About the bake

These are divine warm from the oven but also keep well for up to 3 days . Try them with a chunk of chocolate inside and rolled in cinnamon flavoured caster sugar too! Make sure you allow them to cool fully before rolling them in sugar.

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 3) and lightly grease a 12 hole muffin tin.

  2. Step 2:

    Place all the ingredients except the jam and sugar for dusting into a large mixing bowl and beat well with a wooden spoon until smooth. Place a spoonful of the mixture into each hole in the muffin tin.

  3. Step 3:

    Make a dip in the centre of each cake with a teaspoon, then add a teaspoonful of jam to each one. Top with a little more mixture, and spread to make sure the jam is covered.

  4. Step 4:

    Bake for 25 minutes until risen, golden and just firm to the touch.

  5. Step 5:

    Allow to cool for 10 minutes then remove from the tin and roll gently in caster sugar whilst still warm. Allow to cool then store in a cake tin.
