A lovely simple cake that is quick to put together! I used 1 c of strawberry preserves, and hazelnuts instead of walnuts (as hazelnuts are what I always have on hand). The combination of the the simple batter, sweet preserves and the nutty topping works really well. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and mix well. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly. Add egg and milk and stir until just moistened.
  2. Spread in a well greased 9x9 baking dish. Spread both preserves over top using a knife to swirl the preserves through the batter. Don't swirl too much ~ you want to be able to see some swirls. Sprinkle evenly with the topping.
  3. Bake at 400º for 25-35 minutes. Use a toothpick to check for doneness.
  4. Topping: In a small bowl, mix all ingredients with a fork until crumbled.
