Preparation

  1. Lightly grease an 8 x 8 inch pan.
  2. Pre heat the oven to 350°F
  3. In a large bowl mix the ingredients for the base. Using your hands create a coarse crumbly mixture (as if you're making a crumble or crisp).
  4. Press two thirds of the mixture into the base of the pan. Press down firmly.
  5. Mix together the jam and vanilla extract and carefully spread the jam over the base stopping to give a 1/4 inch margin without any jam at the edges.
  6. Add the additions to the reserved base mixture. Combine well. Sprinkle over the top of the base and jam.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until just turning golden. Allow to thoroughly cool before cutting and serving.
