Jaffa cakes


For the orange jelly

  • In a saucepan, mix the gelatin with 125 g orange juice. 
  • Leave it into the juice for 10 minutes, until it rises. 
  • Heat the mixture over low heat by adding the sugar, too. 
  • When the gelatin melts, remove from the heat, and add the remaining orange juice. 
  • Pour the mixture in a small baking pan, so that the gelatin mixture is 2-3 mm thick, and refrigerate it. Ideally, you should leave it there overnight. 
  • When the jelly has thickened well, dip the bottom of the baking pan into hot water for a while, and flip it over a platter.
  • Refrigerate the platter until needed.

For the cakes

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C (320° F) set to fan. 
  • Butter a 12-cup muffin pan
  • In a mixer’s bowl beat the egg with the yolk and the sugar, for 4-5 minutes. 
  • When the mixture is fluffy, add the flour and mix until there is a smooth dough. Then, divide it among the muffin cups. 
  • Bake the cakes for 7-9 minutes, remove from the oven, and place the muffin pan on a rack to cool. 
  • When the cakes are completely cool, take them out of the cups. 

To assemble

  • Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie or in the microwave, and let it slightly cool. 
  • Cut the orange jelly into 12 circles, using 4-5 cm round cookie cutters
  • Put a jelly circle on top of each cake, and cover with the melted chocolate. 
  • Follow the same process for all of the cakes. Attention! The chocolate has to be quite warm.
