Jam squares

I never knew that something like Jam squares exists :) I simply made a cake and as my little one loves jam a lot I spread the jam over the cake and cut it into small squares and when she asked me for the name, I just told her that these are called “Jam squares”.

When I googled for jam squares, there were a lot of recipes in this name and I was really surprised.

My little one was finishing them quite fast and I was hurrying to get the snaps :-) My in-laws and granny were here at the time when I made this and they loved the taste and I am sure that this will be an instant hit among the kids and as well as elders.

I am dedicating this recipe to our very own “Jammy” for his brilliant 100 at the Eden Gardens :-)

  1. All purpose flour / Maida- ½ cup
  2. Corn flour- 1tbsp
  3. Baking powder- 1tsp
  4. Vanilla Essence- 1tsp
  5. Eggs- 2nos
  6. Castor Sugar- ½ cup
  7. Mixed Fruit Jam- 3tbsp
  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C and line a baking tray with greased butter and all purpose flour. keep it aside.
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar till pale yellow colour and creamy texture.
  3. Sift the flour, corn flour and baking powder well and mix this in the above egg mixture. Stir in the vanilla essence and mix well.
  4. Spread the prepared batter in the greased tray and bake for about 15 minutes.
  5. When it is done, cool it on a wire rack. Trim the edges of the cake.
  6. Mix the jam well and spread it on the cake and cut in the form of squares and enjoy.

  • As a spread you can use any jam of your choice.
  • Sprinkling some nuts on top of the jam will make a difference.
