Bake an unusual cake – biscuits inside cakes!

This week I tweeted a picture of cakes that I had made that had biscuits hidden inside them.

Jammy dodger biscuits inside cake. Also with an Oreo inside a chocolate cupcake

At work, when it’s your birthday, we are meant to bring in a cake for everyone to share. As you know I try to do something different so thought this would be fun to try.

It’s very simple. A small layer of cake batter in the bottom, plonk a biscuit on top then cover it with more cake batter.

Biscuits inside cakes. a layer of cake mixture, plonk a jammy dodger in top then cover with cake. A jammy dodger surprise!

The result is that the biscuit is hidden inside the cake. You can’t tell its there until you’ve sunk your teeth in! It’s a surprise biscuit cake!!

The jammy dodger one was fantastic. The biscuit is not crunchy but when you hit the jam its undeniably a jammy dodger. I tried a bit of jam and butter icing on top but it was a bit too sweet, and a bit too much.

They went down a treat at work and we started riffing on what other biscuits could go into cakes. In fact, I will make this a feature on my blog. So look out for more biscuits hidden inside cakes coming soon!!

Why not suggest some biscuits for me to put into a cake on my Wobble a Jelly Facebook page.
