Share with me this pleasure, head to your kitchen right away to prepare this delectable tart, I am sure you have all the ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cup flour sifted
  • 200g butter cold and cubed
  • 1/2 cup confectioner sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 300g jam (flavor of your choice)

Mix all together until it just starts to come together. You need a crumble like dough not a solid ball of dough.

Preheat you oven 200°C. Take 3/4 of the dough and roll it in your pan (10 inches) with a half cm thickness. Bake for 10 minutes before taking out to spread the jam on top of it. Use any jam you favor, i chose strawberry for this time.

Crumble the rest of the dough over the jam and bake again for another 10 minutes.

Let it cool before serving. Personally i like it at room temperature and also cold from the fridge. It’s one of the treats light in efforts but rich in flavors just bake and slice!

banana cake

banana cakeI am sure if you have kids, means you always have a lot of bananas at home!

Bananas get ripe quickly especially in Doha it’s too hot! Whenever I see some getting too ripe I use them for cake. I tried too many recipes and this one came out the best. Why? because it’s not too sweet, it allows me to use chocolate. I love to pair bananas with chocolate! This cake is a pleasure to make!


  • 200g flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 100g toasted walnut
  • 5-6 bananas (500g)
  • 125g butter
  • 125g brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • a pinch of salt

Toast the walnut in the oven for 5 mins and keep aside to cool while preparing the batter.

Cream the butter and the sugar in a processor or by hand then add the eggs one by one. Chop the walnut medium size and add it with the mashed bananas to the batter, usually I mash them with a fork when too ripe.

Mix well and start to sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix everything together until you have a nice smooth batter.

Preheat the oven to 170°C and bake for almost an hour in the middle shelf. Test the cake by poking a skewer into the middle, if the skewer comes out clean, it means your cake is ready.

It’s up to you if you want to add chocolate syrup. I melt 200 g of dark chocolate with 1 tsp of vanilla in a bowl and that’s it.

Now the fun part for my baby is when i prepare for him the banana skewers to eat with the cake. it’s a nice way to decorate the cake and please your kids.

I am sure you will get a lot of smiles and mmmm and yumms when you serve this cake
