It’s that time of the year again – yes, Great British Bake Off is back! Albeit a little later than usual (sad face). I am of course joining with the #GBBOBloggers2016 bake along again, and I’ll try to join in as many weeks as possible! I have decided I am going to attempt a few more technical challenges this year, and also be a bit more organised.
It started off well with baking on Monday before the show even aired, then I watched it and decided I would attempt the technical instead (so my original bake will be in a future post!). I love jaffa cakes; I could easily eat a whole pack in one sitting. To be fair, I think they looked quite easy. My famous last words, it seems…
I had a quick google and Mary Berry’s recipe appeared so thought I would just stick with that one. I used jelly crystals and milk chocolate instead though, as that’s what I had in.
So – the cake. A small amount and easy to make. Only I’m sure mine shrank when I removed them from the oven. A 5cm cutter for the jelly was too big, so I had to cut the jelly by hand as I didn’t have a smaller one, therefore the circles are actually hexagons!
And the chocolate. Oh, the chocolate… It started off okay, and as you can see, the top ones look quite pretty and I managed to get
the a pattern on them. But after the first three or so, I gave up as the chocolate just kept sliding off the jelly!
They do taste good! But I think I will just buy them in future…
