150g Self Raising Flour
150g Sugar and Crumbs Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar of your choice /on this occasion we have used Orange Zest Flavour
150g Margarine
3 Eggs
Marmalade, any flavour you desire
For the topping
150g Callebaut Milk Chocolate
150g Callebaut Dark Chocolate

1. Preheat the oven to 140c Gas mark 1, 275F, lightly grease a 12 hole square bun tray.

2. Cream the Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar and the Margarine together until light and fluffy.

3. Add the eggs one at a time, you can also add a spoonful of flour to avoid the mix looking curdled.

4. Divide the mixture equally between the square bun tin and bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until the sponges are golden brown and firm to the touch.

5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes in the tin before transferring them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

6. Using a small mini pallet knife cut a medium size square layer not too deep out of the top of the cakes and spoon the marmalade into it. 

7. Melt the Callebaut Chocolate in a microwavable bowl in the microwave on 30 seconds bursts until smooth and runny.

8. Cool the melted chocolate down by adding a few chocolate chips at a time until the chocolate is cool on your lip.

9. Using a dessert spoon carefully spoon the chocolate over the marmalade and smooth it to the edge of the cakes. Try not to let the chocolate drip down the sides but if oil does do not worry it’s more chocolate for you.

10. Put the Jaffa Cakes in the fridge for 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.

11. The Jaffa Cakes will keep for up to a week if stored in an airtight container.
