The most delicious jam tart ever

Happy National Dessert Day! Here’s a resplendent recipe from @lovelystrawberry, PumpUp’s resident baking expert. Check out her Instagram @claudiazamboni!
I’ve always loved jam tarts, because I think they are way healthier than chocolate cakes and creamy cakes, so I decided to make one of my own.
I guarantee this cake is delicious, also my grandmother Vittoria appreciated it. 

Ingredients:
  • 250 g flour (about 2 cups)
  • 50g ground almonds 
  • 8 g baking powder
  • 100 g powdered sugar (I used powdered sugar because it makes the cake more soft)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Lemon zest (about half Lemon)
  • 1 egg
  • 80/100 g (about 1/3 cup) melted butter
  • 250 g of jam (I used the apricot one, from Zuegg, 100% fruit)
Process
Put the flour, ground almonds, baking powder, sugar and a pinch of salt into a bowl and blend it all.
Put the lemon zest, the egg and the butter and blend it all with the help of your hands until you create a ”ball” of pastry.
Now line a cake tin with some baking paper and put 3/4 of the pastry into the cake tin.
Put all the jam on the pastry and leave a small border around the cake.
Now, with the 1/4 of the pastry, create long strips and arrange them as you like over the jam.
Put the cake into the oven for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees. 
Hope you like it, and ‘buon appetito’ (the italian way to say enjoy your meal).
