Jammy Jobs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Tulip-Fairy

These are called Maids of Honour in the real world, but my kids like to call them jammy jobs and the name has stuck. They are little jam tarts with a light sponge topping. Very morish, so much so that I have to double the recipe every time!

Simple, cute and yummy! I didn't feel like rolling out dough, so I just kind of pressed the dough into muffin tins. I had to make extra for the cake topping, but that was probably my inability to convert from oz. to cups properly - it wasn't a problem to make more, however, since it was so simple. I topped them with powdered sugar. Thanks for sharing!
