Tried this a couple of weeks ago, but next time going to use a dark chocolate ganache for the topping to try to bring the overall sweetness down a bit.
I'm also going to twice-bake the base to try to get the texture right.
this was my first attempt at baking this jaffa. Following the recipe was easy and it looks and tastes great, the jelly is not quite the same as the real thing but I have an idea for the next one, will post it if it works out. By the way I bought a cheap frying pan and took the handle off to put it on the oven and used the lid of the large casserole pot for the jelly mould.
no no no this is all wrong. I will submit my recipe for an authentic British giant Jaffa Cake. Delicious! mmmm
Doesn't work at all. No cake tin is that big, and you cannot use a frying pan, as most frying pans have plastic handles that will melt in the oven. The sponge will work. But the jaffa bit does not. =[
