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