Crumb Cake

This cake is very easy to make and it's very popular in Lithuania. So this is what we will need:
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 Glass of sugar (add more if you like your cake sweeter!)
  • 500 grams (1.1 lbs) of wheat flour
  • 150 grams (6 oz) of butter
  • 1 tea spoon of baking powder
  •  500 grams (1.1 lbs) of your favorite jam (Best choices are blueberry, apricot or black currant. But every thick jam will do) 
Get a large comfortable bowl :) Melt the butter and mix it with sugar. Get that big bowl of yours and add everything: butter and sugar mix, flour, eggs, baking powder and start kneading the dough! When the mass is nice and even, put the bowl in the fridge for about 1.5 hours. The mass should be quite hard and after chilling in the fridge it must be very hard. Get your baking tray and tile it with baking paper. Break 2/3 of dough in to crumbs (not too little, size of your nail will do) and spread them on baking paper, you can do this with your hands or using a grater. Take your favorite jam and spread it on the crumbs. Break 1/3 of dough that's left in to crumbs and spread them on top of the jam. Heat the oven to 180 °C (365 °F) and bake for 50 mins.

After 50 mins - your very om nom nom cake is ready! Serve it with a cold glass of milk, or few scoops of your favorite ice cream :)
