Method

15 minutes
 
Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
Grease two to three sheets of patty pans.
PASTRY
Rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Add the sugar, salt and baking powder and mix well.
Add the eggs and just enough milk to form a stiff dough that's easy to roll out.
On a floured surface roll out the dough to a thickness of about 3 mm.
Cut out circles big enough to line the hollows of the prepared patty poans.
TOPPING
Spoon a teaspoonful of jam into each pastry case.
Cream the sugar and butter.
Beat in the eggs.
Sift the cake flour and baking powder on top and mix.
Spoon 5 ml of the mixture on top of the jam in each hollow and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until done.
Cool slightly in the pans before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store in an airtight container.
