How to make a cake for tea in a hurry

We think everyone has some fruit in the house or you are sure to have made a preparation for the winter and you have a jar of your favorite jam in the fridge. This will be the main ingredient for our quick tea cake.

Cake for tea: recipe


  • Flour – 250 gr.
  • Butter – 120 gr.
  • Egg – 1 pc
  • Sugar – 5 tbsp
  • Vanilla
  • Baking powder – 1 tsp.
  • Apples – 2-3 pcs of apple jam


Rub the butter and flour into crumbs, and add the egg, vanillin (if desired), baking powder, and sugar. Knead the dough.

Roll out the dough on parchment paper. Place apple slices (or jam), tuck in the edges, and sprinkle lightly with sugar.

Bake at 180 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

When the cake cools, you can sprinkle it with powdered sugar or almond petals, and sesame seeds. Bon appetit!

Such a delicate cake for tea with jam will be a delicious bonus to your table. Let’s open the secret that such a quick sweet pie can be made with any fruit that you have in your house. Great for pears, plums, and even pumpkins! And if you make the dough salty (just add salt instead of sugar!), you can experiment with the filling even more: take meat, mushrooms, or vegetables, and the pie for tea becomes a great snack.
