Hey all, Just a quick question really!
I really wanna make a 'Jaffa Cake' Cake - sponge, orange filling and chocolate ganache - my question is - what is the orange jelly like filling in a McVities jaffa cake? I love the mini rolls they do and want to make something simular!
Is it just a marmalade? or something else? Can you make it from scratch?
I hope someone out there knows!
Thanks in advance!
jaffa cakes is more like a jelly. not sure if its ifferent in the mini rolls though. ive seen some places offer this kind of flavour, and use marmalade, or orange bc.
oh it would be interesting to try a disc of jelly in a cake. not sure how well it would work, in terms of not slipping, but it works in jaffa cakes, so who knows?
Mmmmmmm jaffa cakes........
Love Jaffa cakes! what a great idea for a cake! Maybe this will work? http://www.mydish.co.uk/recipe/535/lornas_jaffa_cake_pudding
The recipe says one packet of jelly cut in cubes - our Jell-o is powdered and and you make it with water. Is jelly in the UK premade? Would I make Jell-o first and then cube it? Or am I missing something?
uk jelly comes in like concentrated packets of jelly, we need to melt it down with hot water (orange juice in that recipe), then it makes proper jelly. so at a guess, id say make up your jello powder with the hot orange instead of the water.
