Glazed Chocolate Jam Cake
« on: May 20, 2011, 04:13:06 am »
Glazed Chocolate Jam Cake


100g butter cubed
160g organic raw sugar
160g water
120g fruit jam of your choice (apricot, strawberry, blackberry etc)

180g plain organic wheat flour (use a bit more for spelt)
1 rounded tsp baking powder
tsp bicarb soda
20g cocoa
2 eggs

Additional tbsp of jam for glazing


Preheat oven to 180 degrees (160 fan forced) and grease a 22cm round cake tin (I also like to line the base with greaseproof paper).

Weigh the butter, sugar, water and jam into the TMX bowl and melt for 3 minutes at 80 degrees on speed 1.

Add remaining ingredients and mix for 20 seconds on speed 4 or until well combined. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl after 10 seconds.

Scrape mixture into the prepared tin (it may be a little runny) and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Leave in the tin for 15 minutes before turning out onto a cake cooler.

Spread the cake with the additional tbsp of jam that has been warmed.

Enjoy as a deliciously moist cake or as a dessert served with whipped cream or custard.

Yum. This will be on the cooking list when I go home.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
