Strawberry jaffa cakes

Welcome!

Long time no see, uhn? I made this recipe as a little something for Valentine’s Day, and only now sharing it… That’s embarassing…

This recipe is inspires by a specific boxed cookies my parents bought a couple times, I loved them so much! So, decided to make my own.

I based my recipe on Mary Berry’s Jaffa cake recipe.

It’s quite a simple recipe, but I managed to mess some things up.

First, my muffin tin is quite huge, makes massive muffins, so, my sponge base was too big and too thick.

Secondly, I don’t think I let my chocolate cool enough. When I poured it over my gelatine, I think my gelatine started melting, giving it a weird colour and look.

However, it was still delicous. Everyone that tried them told me I could do them again!

Lesson is, not everything that tastes delicious looks great. Hope to make this again and get it right. I will share it if I do!

Thank you for reading and bye!
