Tips & variations

  • You can bake a cake with any jam, it always turns out tasty and fragrant. The main thing is that the filling is thick enough. If the jam with berries or fruits is watery, you can kill it with a blender.

  • To prepare the dough, you can take butter and margarine in equal proportions.

  • You need to bake the cake in a well-heated oven, then the grated dough will quickly grab and will not lose its beautiful shape.

  • To prevent jam or juicy years from flowing out, 1-2 teaspoons of starch can be added to the filling.

  • When freezing the dough in the freezer, it is better to wrap it in cling film.

  • When the top layer of baking is lightly browned, check it for readiness: pierce with a wooden skewer in several places, if the skewer comes out dry, then the form (or baking sheet) can be removed from the oven.

  • It is necessary to remove the cake from the mold after it has completely cooled, otherwise it will break.
