Quick, easy & super deliciousThat’s the best way to describe this Jam Cake with toasted Hazelnuts aka the “quickie” or “lazy” cake with only 10 ingredients. Ingredients you probably already have at home. I was thinking to name this the “lazy cake” because it’s so simple and easy to make, you basically just need one big pan, a measuring cup and a mixing spoon. Ideal to do with kids as well.
Perfect for tea or coffee breakI would say this is a perfect cake to enjoy with a nice cup of coffee or tea. The toasted hazelnuts combine so well with the blueberry jam, it’s sweet, but not too much and has this toasty, nutty flavour. I really enjoy this with my mid-moring Oat Lattes.
Swap ingredientsYou can adapt this Jam Cake with toasted Hazelnuts the way you or your kids like it most. Just think of your favourite fruit and buy a jar of jam of it and add your favourite nuts and that’s it. My favourite combinations are of course this one, blueberry jam and toasted hazelnuts, or I do also like raspberry jam with almonds, or also with peanuts. The possibilities are endless. In case you have several jars of jam open you can also mix them all together and finish them by making this fantastic Jam Cake. It will turn out well, I guarantee.
100% plantbasedNo dairy or eggs are necessary for this cake. This is actually a very old, non-vegan recipe I had from years ago. But I swapped the butter for vegan butter and the eggs are replaced by a “flax egg”. That’s just crushed flax seeds, mixed with a few tablespoons of water and then set aside for about 5 minutes. This will then turn into a gelly like consistency and is added to the cake dough. It will hold together the whole thing, just as eggs do, but without the saturated animal fat and the colesterol which come with the eggs. And I swear there is no difference in the cake. So go ahead and give it a try, I’m sure you’ll already have these ingredients in your kitchen pantry. Check out my other cake recipes, perfect for your afternoon tea or coffee:
