The most delicious jam tart ever


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. 

  • 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)
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).

Follow this recipe and you won’t regret it.


3 Apples 
1 cup of milk 
1 cup of sunflower seed oil or 70/80 g of melted butter
180g (1 1/2 cups) flour
180g (3/4 cups + 2 tbsp) sugar (you can lessen the sugar)
16 g (2 tbsp) baking powder
Optional: add a small glass of orange liqueur.
Sieve the flour with the baking powder into a bowl and add the sugar.
Put into the bowl the milk and then the oil (or the butter), always blending and add the liqueur if you want to.
Now cut one apple and an half into small pieces and put them into the bowl.
Line a cake tin with some baking paper and put all the dough into the cake tin.
Cut the other apple and an half into slices and put them on the top of the cake, covering the cake.
Put the cake into the oven at 180 degrees for about 45/50 minutes. When the cake is cool, dust it with a bit of powdered sugar (optional).
Bon appétit
