    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!
