Since switching to a vegan way of eating, one thing that I was definitely missing very much is classic jaffa cakes. Small cookie size chocolate orange biscuits with a soft cake base, orange jelly taste and a dark chocolate glaze.
Those homemade vegan jaffa cakes have a nice soft cake base, a layer of a delicious orange jelly with a gorgeous taste of orange zest, and a crunchy chocolate glaze on top. Orange jelly can definitely be made with a variety of ingredients, but this time I decided to do it with orange juice, agar and orange zest because I got the best results by making it this way. Those cookies taste exactly how I remember them from years ago. The time of preparing and cooking is short, it takes only 12 -13 min for baking (in the convection oven) in 2-3 muffin pans. What takes most of the time is glazing the cookies.
The thing that makes jaffa cookies recognizable worldwide is the unique print on top over the chocolate glaze. I achieved that print by using a fork, by gently pressing the fork over thickened chocolate glaze while it was cooling down.
I'm sorry that this recipe was not useful for you.
