These are adorable treats and so easy a child could make them. I didn't have berry jam, so I used lemon marmalade which worked quite well. The cake was spongey and not overly sweet. The cooking time was pretty much correct for my microwave; for cooking them all at once. I forgot to grease the cups (I used coffee mugs), but it didn't matter, they came right out, onto the serving dish. I LOVE this recipe.
