The subtle art of Mini Jammy cakes

Right I am going to whizz through some of the cakes/bakes I have done in the last few months. I have been baking – honest guv – just no time to blog.

First off all Mini jammy cakes. Now let me just say, if you have kids this is the perfect recipe for you, ie. it is messy, quick and easy.

I have a 5 and a 3 year old and they loved baking these. They loved rubbing the butter into the flour (tickling the flour). ie lots of mess.

They loved mixing the milk in and squelching the mixture into a dough. They loved rolling the mixture into a ball and making a hole with a wooden spoon.

Most of all they loved plopping a dollop of jam to finish it off. They used blackcurrant jam (as its much nicer than strawberry!)

It also only took 10 mins to cook, so once the molten like jam had cooled down it was ready to eat.
