Recipe from NMAA Cooks
Image by Cath Muscat

This is an old time classic which I would like to revive for old times sack. This was one of the first recipes I made by myself and I thought I was so clever!!! If you are going to teach your children, grandchildren or neighbours children how to cook, I would recommend starting them of with this recipe and the simplicity cake recipe. If you are just starting this is definately one to try!

  • 60g butter
  • 60g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • jam
Beat butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add egg and flour and beat well. Put small teaspoons on ungreased tray. Press hole in centre. Fill hole with any type of jam. Bake for 10 minutes in hot oven.


  1. I love this classic; particularly with a good cup of tea in the afternoon! Pretty picture too Yas.

  2. These would taste fantastic with my quince jam that I am making daily at present. Diane

  3. My mum used to make these... wonderful! Do you mind if I ask you how old you are? :) Thanks about my door :)

  4. I have always loved jam drops. I have never really made them but with this recipe staring me in the face and my wife just buying a new 'rRed Purse' cooky jar from Niemand Marcus, I guess it is time for me to bake something like these to fill the jar. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. This is a wonderful easy recipe! I must try this soon! Thanks for sharing dear!

  6. These are lovely, reminds me of my childhood!
