Jam Breakfast Cake with Streusel

This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek. I was sent samples by the sponsor companies but, as always, opinions are all mine.

Sweet and satisfying Jam Breakfast Cake with Streusel covers all the bases, including a substantial streusel layer atop plops of jammy goodness.

My motto is “any day with cake is a good day.” If that worldview works for you, this is your sweet treat, because it can be served for breakfast (hey, it has jam in it!), a snack with tea, or dessert after a meal. It’s versatile like that, and your day will be all the better for it.

It’s also versatile because you can instantly change up the flavor by using whatever jam you have on hand, or that needs using up, even that jar of gift jam your relatives gave you from their recent travels. I hear it is even good with Nutella instead of jam (and chopped hazelnuts in the streusel), but I haven’t tried that yet. Note to self: Try it!

Jam Breakfast Cake with Streusel

Sweet and satisfying Jam Breakfast Cake with Streusel covers all the bases, including a substantial streusel layer atop plops of jammy goodness.

Ingredients

  • Streusel Topping
  • 1/4 cup (52g) brown sugar (packed into measuring cup); I used Dixie Crystals
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar; I used Dixie Crystals
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup (130g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons; 85g) unsalted butter, melted or very soft
  • .
  • Cake Batter
  • 1/3 cup (66g) olive oil (I use a very light colored, mild-tasting version for baking)
  • 1/2 cup (120g) milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract; I used Adams Extracts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; I used Adams Extracts
  • 1/3 cup (66g) granulated sugar; I used Dixie Crystals
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (130g) all-purpose flour
  • .
  • 1/2 cup jam of your choosing (I have tried boysenberry, blackberry and strawberry in this, but use what you like or have!)
  • Garnish: Your choice of colored sprinkles, if you like; I used 1-2 tablespoons “Little Man” from Sweets & Treats

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350F degrees. Butter the bottom and inside of a 9-inch round Spring form pan (I used an Analon pan), and set aside. (This can also be baked in a square 8x8-inch or 9x9-inch pan. An 8x8 will take 35 minutes and cut nicely into 9 square pieces.)
  2. Make the streusel: In a mixing bowl, combine brown and white sugars, cinnamon, flour and salt, and mix or stir until combined. Add butter and mix until streusel forms, sort of like damp sand. I use an electric mixer for this, but you can certainly do it by hand. Put the streusel in a separate bowl.
  3. Make the cake batter: Using the same mixing bowl (no need to wash it), add the olive oil, milk, egg, salt, both extracts and granulated sugar. Mix to combine well. Add the baking powder and whisk in. Add the flour and mix in, just until combined. Do not overmix or your cake might be rubbery.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Stir jam to loosen, and dollop jam over the batter, swirling just a little bit to spread it around a bit if you like. A note about the jam: The cake is quite sweet, so this is an ideal time to use a lower-sugar fruit spread if you have one on hand. Sprinkle all the streusel over the jam-dolloped cake. Pro-tip: I like some bigger chunks of streusel, so as I am sprinkling it over by hand, I squeeze some in my fist to make bigger chunks, which are fun on top. Can you see them in the photos? Toss on some (optional) sprinkles if you are using them, as a final fun flourish.
  5. Bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes (mine was perfect at 35 minutes), or until the center no longer sinks when you gently poke it. When done, remove from oven and let it rest on a heat-proof surface, about 15 minutes.
  6. Run a knife around the inside edge of the pan, just enough to loosen the cake if it is adhering (but not so vigorously that you scratch the pan), and then loosen the outer rim of the pan. Remove outer rim, and allow cake to cool entirely.
  7. Cut into 8 wedge slices (again, take care not to scratch the nonstick bottom of the pan) and serve!
