50g Milk

200g Big Bear Farms Strawberry Jam




Baking pan size 39cm (L) x 29 cm (W) x 3.5 cm (H)

Hand-blender (optional)



  • Preheat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius

  • Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture gently with a spatula

  • Pour the batter into a baking pan lined with baking paper. The baking paper will make it easier to separate the cake once it is ready
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes until the cake it lightly browned. To check, pierce a tooth-pick into the mixture mid-way to see if it comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake from the pan and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes
