Thank you to the wonderful people at The Happy Foodie for sponsoring this giveaway!
I was recently asked by The Happy Foodie to review and recreate a recipe from one of their vegan cookbook picks (see the article here) and I used the opportunity to bake a recipe I’ve had my eye on for a long time now… Vegan Jaffa Cakes from Ms Cupcake’s ‘Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town!’
(They’ve also generously provided THREE copies to giveaway so scroll down for details on how to win!)
Honestly, I didn’t know it was possible to be this excited over a Jaffa Cake recipe.
If you’ve not heard of Jaffa Cakes before, they’re a classic British treat that is something between a cookie and a cake (a heavily debated topic) and consists of a spongey base, topped with a mound of orange marmalade and coated in chocolate. Pure chocolatey-orangey heaven.
Going vegan, over two years ago now, was always much easier than I thought it would be. It didn’t take me long to realise that most of the things I loved to eat had equally delicious alternatives, from dinners to desserts. However, Jaffa Cakes were one of the few things that there was no replacement for.
Until now! Oh, how I missed them so.
Taking that first bite, I couldn’t tell the difference between these homemade ones and the shop-bought originals. So I can’t recommend this recipe enough!
And they’re not as fiddly as you might expect either. OK, so they might not look ultra-pretty but you’ll forgive that once you taste them.
