Jaffa Cakes!

Oh my oh my oh my!

Now I don't know about you, but I have a little bit of a...shall we say...uncontrollable love for jaffa cakes. Once I've eaten one, I usually end up eating the whole packet. Just how yummy are those little chocolate and orange cake, biscuit thingimawhatsits?!

Go on, admit it - you've done the full moon, half moon, total eclipse haven't you? More than once I bet!

So yeah, anyway, I love jaffa cakes! So I was incredible excited to find out just how easy they are to make at home.

Yes lovelies, you can make home made jaffa cakes.

I'm slightly scared that my waist line is going to suffer.

This is the recipe.

Looks pretty easy? It really was!

Here are my jaffa cakes!

The only problem I had was that the chocolate didn't really want to stick to the orange jelly, I don't know why this is, but I'm going to try and make the jelly thinner but wider next time (yes there will definitely be a next time!) and see if that helps.

TOP TIP! I was concerned that the chocolate would just run off of the sides of the cakes and make a mess so I popped the cakes into cupcake cases and poured the chocolate on in those, once cooled I peeled these away to reveal pretty jaffa cakes :)

They didn't last very long ;)

Who else is going to try these? I think they deserve some more investigation.

    1. Can tell you're a mum! The only ingredient I didn't have was jelly! All mums are going to have jelly already :)

  2. mmmmmmmm I adore Jaffa Cakes and so do my kids!

    1. *whispers* They're on offer in ASDA for 50p a pack which is cheaper than making them! But this will be great when they're full price again :)
