Easy Jam Slice

This beautiful slice is easy to make from start to finish. Feel free to use whatever type and flavour of jam you like.

Serves 15-20

125g melted unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups wholemeal plain flour

1 1/2 cups rolled oats 

1/2 cup brown sugar (loosely packed)

1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda

1 egg

pinch salt

1 cup of your favourite jam

Preheat a fan forced oven to 180C. Spray a slice tin with cooking spray and line with baking paper, leaving sides to overhang (so it can be easily lifted out of pan once cooked and cooled).

Mix together the melted butter, flour, oats, bicarb soda, salt and brown sugar until well combined. Add the egg and mix through.

Place half of the mixture on the base of the sprayed tin. Top it with jam then crumble the rest of the mix over the jam with your hands. Bake 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Remove and allow to cool in the tin before lifting out and cutting.

Best served at room temperature or cold. Store in an airtight container.

Note: you can microwave the jam for a minute to loosen it so it is easy to spread.
