School lunch snack #3

Jam tartsYes!! Have managed to make sweet snacks for every school day in January. Now just have to keep that up for the rest of the year. This week the request was for jam tarts.

I once made jam tarts when I was a first-year student. I had jam and butter but no bread (of the yeast or financial varieties), and a desperate craving for something sweet to eat. Making jam tarts seemed like the obvious solution - even though the hall of residence kitchen only had one of those terrible little Baby Belling ovens. We had had a Christmas party which involved making mince pies, so I did have a bun tin to hand.

Jam tarts have never tasted as good as they did that night.

Ah, Baby Belling nostalgia! I think they're being banned now on safety grounds...
