Jaffa Cake Recipe

1
Start this Jaffa cake recipe by preheating your oven to 180°C/Gas mark 4 and greasing a 12-hole muffin tin
2
Break the warmed egg into a mixing bowl, add the sugar, then whisk on high speed for 10 minutes until light and fluffy
3
Melt the butter in a saucepan over a moderate heat, add to the egg, then gently fold in the flour and ground almonds
4
Spoon into the moulds and bake for 10 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean
5
Allow the Jaffa cakes to cool on a wire rack, then cut each one in half through the middle, forming a base and a lid
6
Scoop out a small piece of each base and fill with a teaspoon of marmalade, then put the lids back on top
7
Melt the chocolate in a bowl placed over a pan of simmering water until smooth. Place a tray lined with baking paper on your work surface then, using a fork, dip the Jaffa cakes in the chocolate, then set them on the paper
8
When you have dipped all the Jaffa cakes, put them in the fridge to set for 10–15 minutes. As a garnish, decorate with small pieces of peel from the marmalade
