A creative baker has revealed how she constructed her own giant Jaffa Cake using just a handful of ingredients.
The popular sweet treat contains a layer delicious orange jelly, sandwiched between a soft spongy layer and a dark chocolate topping.
And it turns out it’s pretty simple to recreate at home – even if you fancy making one the size of your face rather than faffing about with those other bite-size versions.
Vanessa Cassidy shared her method with photos and a simple guide to do it yourself on the popular Rate My Plate Facebook page.
Many of the group’s other members wasted no time in trying it out for themselves, posting photos of their own attempts in reply.
Vanessa made the spongy base using 100g of butter, sugar and flour, mixed with two eggs and one teaspoon of baking powder.
She baked it in a circular tin before adding orange jelly, set in a slightly smaller bowl to act as the filling.
Finish it off by melting dark chocolate and smothering it over the top until it resembles the iconic snack, and leave it to set.
Vanessa advised making the sponge and jelly separately and allowing each to fully set before you begin to construct the giant Jaffa for best results.
She lightly dragged a fork across the top of the chocolate before it hardened to resemble the pattern found on top of the genuine articles, writing: “Ta-da! A giant Jaffa cake!”
One joked: “I would risk social distancing to mug you for that.”
A second politely asked: “Can you pretty please move in with me for the weekend and make me lots of these – will be your best friend forever.”
Another added their own twist on the recipe, suggesting: “Next time, make the jelly with orange marmalade, gelatine and water – it gives a more realistic taste.”
