Jaffa Cakes

  • c

Please help me!

My boyfriend is from the UK and and really loves Jaffa cakes. the problem is we are in South Africa and don't get them here. I can figure most of it out but could some one please tell me how to make the really nice orange stuff?

    The one time I tried to recreate these, I found that Robertson's Orange marmalade was the closest

    The nicer marmalades are not sufficiently, er chemically

    here is a recipe I found if you want to try and make it from scratch

    BTW - if you do make them or procure them, try using some soaked in Oloroso sherry for the base of a trifle. Really very nice indeed
