Kids love jam. However every time spreading it on a bread slice or paratha might get boring. This cake is an awesome way out to that.

Egg 1
Oil 1/2cup
Jam 3 tbsps
Whole wheat flour 1 cup
Baking powder 1 tsp
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
Milk 3/4 to 1 cup
Seeds optional

Let’s get baking!

  1. Beat 1 egg until fluffy with stiff peaks
  2. Add in 1/2 cup oil, Mixed fruit jam and beat till they all mix properly
  3. Add in 1 cup flour, 1 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Mix well.
  4. Add around 3/4 to 1 cup milk to get the right consistency of the batter
  5. Transfer to a greased baking tin
  6. Bake in a pre- heated oven at 180 °C for 30 to 40 mins
  7. Check with a toothpick/knife/fork
    It’s done when it comes clean


  1. You can use any other flavoured jam instead of mixed fruit. It depends on your liking.
  2. I havent added sugar as jam already has sugar in it. But if you want you can a little according to your liking. In that case the milk ratio will change.
  3. Since it has jam in it, you will have to store it in the fridge. It stays good for about 4 to 5 days.

This cake makes a good snack or even tiffin item. Plus its whole wheat. So towards the healthy side.

That’s all for today. More easy to make yummy recipes coming up soon.

Stay tuned
