• 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 250 gm non salted butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 whole jar of jam (your favourite flavour!)


  • STEP 1
    Pre heat the oven to 240C/fan 220C/gas 9.
  • STEP 2
    Grease a large baking tin (at least 2 inches deep)
  • STEP 3
    Mix together the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder and butter either by hand or with a food processor until like a dough in consistency. If the mixture is a little dry add a small splash of milk.
  • STEP 4
    Put half of the dough mix into the pre prepared tin, spread the mixture out and push down. Take care to make sure all the corners are covered.
  • STEP 5
    Spread the whole jar of jam over the first layer of mixture, it looks like a sandwich cake! Make sure the jam is evenly spread.
  • STEP 6
    Cover the jam layer evenly with the second half of the mixture. Push down slightly and ensure all the jam is covered.
  • STEP 7
    Cook at 240C/fan 220C/gas 9 for 10 minutes, then turn the oven down to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3 for 30-40 minutes, until the top has turned a golden colour.
