Jaffa Cakes are a cross between cake and cookie in my mind. Introduced by McVite as a commercial product way back in 1927 they get their name from the Jaffa oranges.
They are essentially small sponge cakes with orange marmalade and chocolate sauce. I first ate them many years ago when an aunt got it from me from London and since then I have almost been addicted. The combination of Chocolate and orange works so well for me and some days when I am in a mood I add a little Cointreau to the melting chocolate and gosh u have totally irresistible bites

This is a recipe I adapted from Jamie Oliver and it is absolutely fool proof. Works like wonders and it is so easy it is not funny (see a pattern in my recipes, I always pick easy ones 😛 )
