Jaffa Cakes


I have noticed again and again, that I usually don't do bloghopping on weekends, sometimes I think it is unfair to the bloggers who blog on weekend ( even i do sometime post on weekends) as each monday morning when I open up my google reader and se so many blogs to read I usually delete all of them as I did today morning as I know if i have to catch up with all that blog I will have to sit in front of my computer for few hours. I know i know it is unfair, but then that is me beeing lazy and inconsiderate.

Now to the recipe, I accidently came across this blog while I was searching for Jaffa Cakes, and the moment I saw the picture in the MojeWypieki blog with these cakes I knew I was going to make, the minus point was it was in Polish and as I don't have no knowledge of the this language, I used google translator which as you all know sucks, but still I could use my little brain cells and make them.
Just that I didn't used the home made jelly method which i would have loved to do as that looked so good, but with translation dificulties I thought I will just use jam.
But have to say we loved it,I think the first day itself we ate few with our coffee, but have to say it is a tad too sweet maybe becaus I used for filling jam.



3 eggs seperated
80 gm sugar
75 gm flour
Couple of big tbsp of any kind of jam.
For the chocolate glaze
180 gm dark chocokate
one and a half tbsp of oil ( tasteless)

Beat the eggwhites,stiff, Slowly adding the sugar ( don't pout all the sugar at the same time). Add to this mix the egg yolks, blend. Slowly sprinkle the flour and foil in. Making sure you mis it all gentley.
Add the mix into a pipping bag with a thick round cap and pipe them it round size leaving space betweek each of them.
Preheat the oven to 180° c and bake the small cakes for 10 minutes.
Melt the chocolate with the oil in the MW  mix well making sure all teh chcolate is melted and leve it aside for ( the recipe said 15 minutes I cooled it for some 7 minutes)

Cool on a wire rack.
When the cakes are cooled; add a tsp of jam on top of each cake and using a tbsp pour melted chocolate one top of each cakes and leave the chocolate to hard on top.
Enjoy this sweet Jaffa Cakes.
I do have step by step ocures of the making the cakes, will add them when I finish editing the pic.

I have heard of Jaffa cakes but never seen them. Have heard of Jaffa oranges, though!

I never blog on the weekends, if I can help it. No one reads it and the post gets lost, at least mine.
