For sure, many of you, like me, remember from childhood very delicious school cakes according to GOST: so-called sand bars with jam. Extraordinarily tender, friable, fragrant-fruit cakes are now often baked to their children: after all, in schools, they are no longer sold in buffets. Cooking cakes with fruit jam on this recipe is easy and simple. Are you with me?
- 325 grams of flour;
- 200 grams of soft butter;
- 130 grams of sugar;
- 8 grams of vanilla sugar (one sachet);
- 1 teaspoon baking powder;
- 1 fresh chicken egg;
- 300 grams of fruit jam (apple, pear, cherry) - at your discretion.
Very tasty school cakes according to GOST. Step-by-step recipe
- To make a dough for pastries, add all the ingredients in one bowl.
- To soft cream butter (hold for a while at room temperature) add vanilla sugar and egg. Beat the mixer until smooth.
- Then pour the sifted flour together with the baking powder. We continue to whisk.
- We knead the dough for pastry to uniformity with our hands, collect it in a bowl, wrap it in a bag.
- We remove the ready dough for school cakes for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
- After the lapse of time, we take out the dough, and roll it out on parchment into a layer: 1 cm thick.
- We shift it along with the paper on a baking sheet (I have a baking sheet size of 33 by 30 centimeters), level it.
- At a temperature of 220 degrees in the oven, bake the cake: to a golden color. Do not overdo: the cake should not be too roast, otherwise it will become stiff.
- The edges (about 1 cm wide) are immediately cut off and we make a crumb.
- We cut the cake into two equal parts and leave it to cool.
- For the filling of cakes we need 300 grams of jam. I use cherry: I like the combination of a sweet base with a slight sourness of jam. But you can use any other jam or thick jam - for your taste.
- Half the cooled cake is transferred to the board, spread with jam and cover with the second half of the cake: it is also lubricated with jam. From above all we cover prepared crumb. Let stand for 30-40 minutes at room temperature.
- Cut into strips width of 10 centimeters, shift delicious cakes according to GOST on a dish - and you can try.
We serve a fragrant fruit cake with tea or milk. But especially tasty crumbly school cake with cocoa and jelly - as in childhood, as in the school canteen. You can see even more recipes for unusual baked goods on our website "Very tasty". Have a nice tea.
