Coconut Jam Cake.

Hello everybody.

My hubby’s friends are coming over tonight,I had no idea of what to do till I came back from a visit to my uncle’s house at noon, guess once you enter the kitchen ideas will flow.

Result was some cheese and chicken pastries,fruit salad and a beautiful cake that I found in Jammie Oliver’s website,it’s a typical British cake served usually at tea time.I used my new cake slicer to make 4 layers of it then stuffed each layer  with strawberry jam, cream and coconut.

Lunch was lasagna and a dish of labaneh with  hedge mustard ( حويرنه)

Ingredients and method:

* 1 1/2 cups butter.

* 1 1/2 cups sugar.

* 4 eggs.

* 1 tsp vanilla.

* 1/4 cup milk.

* 1 1/2 cups flour.

* 2 tsp baking powder.

* Strawberry jam.

* whipping cream ( 2 cups)


* whisk butter and sugar till creamy then add eggs,milk,vanilla.

* add flour and baking powder.

* add either whole batter in one deep baking pan or two small ones.

* bake in a medium heated oven till done and center is dry.

* assemble layers by adding jam,cream then coconut between each layer.

* cover all layers with remaining cream and decorate with coconuts.
