Glazed Jam Cake (a coffee cake)

Garrison Wayne


I love the sweetness of a good coffee cake in the morning. Pair that with an equally good cup of coffee and scrambled eggs, and that's a breakfast I can rave about. This is a relatively easy cake to make. Just follow the steps to create the different layers. Don't overwork anything and you will have great success. I particularly like using a mixed berry jam for this recipe, but I leave that up to you. The possibilities are only limited to the flavors of jam available. Have a SWEET MORNING!

How to Make Glazed Jam Cake (a coffee cake)


  1. Place the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Incorporate the cold butter by using a pastry blender until a coarse meal is achieved.
  2. Fold in the milk and beaten egg, just until mixed. Do not over mix.
  3. Spread the cake batter in a well buttered 9 inch pie tin.
  4. Using a spoon, drop dollops of jam over the cake batter. Using the back of a spoon, carefully spread the jam so that you have an even layer.
  5. Place the Streusel ingredients in a small mini-processor. Pulse about 12 pulses to make a slighly lumpy meal.
  6. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the cake evenly.
  7. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 27 minutes. Test with a pick.
  8. Cool the cake a bit and put the glaze together by mixing in a small bowl. Drizzle the glaze over the cake while it is still warm. Set 10 minutes and serve, or serve later at room temperature.
