So this week, marks the six month anniversary of the Feastforfamine Journey, and I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that has supported me during this time…We have been to a lot of places together and at the end of this post is a complete list of all the recipes created so far and I’d love to have your feedback if you’ve managed to make any of them!
To mark the 6 months, I would like to share with you all, a recipe very close to my heart, it’s another one from my childhood, but this time one I used to watch my Nan make all the time, when I was little, and one that later, I helped her make…Nan’s Jam Tart.
Growing up not only did I have great neighbours, (remember the Inspired by the Philippines: Sticky Chicken Drumsticks with Vegetable Noodles), My grandparents also lived two doors down, so whenever I felt a bit peckish or fancied a natter, I would wander down to my Grandparents house and chat away with my Nan while she cooked, I remember not only how good this tasted but also how quickly my Nan put it all together, including making her own pastry!
This recipe I remember so fondly, and loved making this recently with my own daughter…I hope you enjoy it too, so here it is:
Nan’s Jam Tart
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 30mins chill time/20 mins in the oven
Ingredients: 100g salted or unsalted butter, 200g self raising flour, 1 egg,
For the filling: jar of jam (your choice but I used one from the St. Dalfour range, as it has less sugar).
- Mix the butter and flour into a breadcrumb like consistency, then add one egg to combine the mixture, make into a ball and leave in the fridge for 30mins
- Pre-heat your oven to 180F
- Roll out your pastry to the thickness of a pound coin
- Grease a cake tin ( I used one with W20cm), place the pastry on top, gently pushing down, cutting off any excess which you can use for decoration,
- Make a few fork marks across the base and now spread your jam all over
- Bake in the oven for 20mins…
- Eat hot or cold, served with custard, ice cream or just a nice cuppa!
