If you’ve not heard of Jaffa Cakes before, they’re a classic British treat that is something between a cookie and a cake (a heavily debated topic) and consists of a spongey base, topped with a mound of orange marmalade and coated in chocolate. Pure chocolatey-orangey heaven.

Going vegan, over two years ago now, was always much easier than I thought it would be. It didn’t take me long to realise that most of the things I loved to eat had equally delicious alternatives, from dinners to desserts. However, Jaffa Cakes were one of the few things that there was no replacement for.

Spongey cakes with orange marmalade filling, coated with chocolate. You won't believe how much these taste like original Jaffa Cakes!

  • 100 g scant 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 60 g 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 100 ml 1/3 cup + 4 tbsp soya or rice milk
  • 50 ml 3 tbsp + 1 tsp light rapeseed or other flavourless oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or essence
  • 150 g 3/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips, or a bar broken into pieces
  • 50 g 3 tbsp + 1tsp dairy free margarine
  • 1/2 orange grated zest
  • 12-15 tsp orange marmalade
  1. Grease a bun tray. Preheat the oven to 180c/350F/gas 4.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour and caster sugar. Add the milk, oil and vanilla, stirring until just combined. Drop a small spoonful of the batter into each of the holes in the prepared tray and bake for about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the tray for 2 minutes before turning the bases out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Melt the chocolate and margarine in a pan on a low heat, stirring constantly until combined. Remove from the heat and add the orange zest.
  4. Once the cakes have cooled, and before removing them from the wire rack, spoon a dollop of orange marmalade on top of each one. Spoon the chocolate evenly over the cakes so that the tops are completely covered. The excess chocolate can drip through the wire rack leaving the bottoms free of chocolate. Refrigerate on the rack for about 20 minutes until set. Keep these bad boys refrigerated until you are ready to serve them.
