As I come back to my original blog I figure the best place to start is with something that makes me happy.

Baking.

And I figure I should do something fun.

Jelly cakes

The boys love them and they are great to make with their help. But come to think of it, I love them. Make them in those shallow cupcake trays (a bit like Madeliene tins in depth, but just round in shape) and don’t overfill – you want little cakes you can just pop in your mouth.

Go crazy with different coloured jellies.

Cake
125g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups SR flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

– Preheat oven to 180C
– Cream butter with sugar
– Add egg
– Fold in flour, milk and vanilla
– Spoon into greased patty-pan tins
– Bake for 10 minutes

Jelly
1 cup boiling water
1 packet jelly crystals
3/4 cup cold water
2 1/2 cups dessicated coconut

– Make jelly and chill for 2-2 1/2 hours

When cakes are cooled and jelly is sort of half set, roll cakes in the jelly, then in the coconut.

Eat up.
