Jam cake was on my mind for quite a long time, i have tasted it in bakeries and wanted to recreate it at home. Finally couple days back i made it and it was a huge success. I used a simple eggless cake recipe and it turned out so melt in mouth softness..
I made it as two layers and sandwiched the both with some jam and dusted the top with some icing sugar. It was simple, elegant and tasty.
I used my homemade papaya jam for this, but you can use any of your favourite jam for this..My strawberry jam will be perfect for this too..Give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
