I love Jaffa Cakes, a low fat-low calorie snack. However I always buy them therefore, when I stumbled across this recipe online, I had to try it! I found it at this website Jamie Oliver
I’m a huge fan of his cooking and recipes. Having never made them before I was a little apprehensive however they turned out beautifully.
I used way more than 100g of chocolate. I opted for Terry’s Chocolate Orange and used nearly two!!! You can never have too much chocolate. I also used orange and tangerine marmalade but didn’t sieve the zest out as the recipe advised. I think it gave it a nice bitterness next to the sweet, zesty chocolate.
They were delicious with a cup of tea, a perfect afternoon treat. They are the perfect balance of sweet and zesty. Compared with shop bought they highly exceeded my expectations but I’m not sure they are as low calorie. (I’m guessing not, with the amount of chocolate on top.) Grab one while you can though; they don’t hang around for long.
