  • 100ml fresh milk
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1/2 jar Kerry Green Homemade Rhubarb and Ginger Jam

Method:

  • Heat the oven to 170°C and grease and line a 28x18cm cake tin.

  • Cover with the remaining cake mixture and then the rest of the streusel and bake for 40 minutes, or until the cake is well risen and golden brown.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the tin before cutting into squares and serving with custard or cream.
