Palestinian Jaffa Cakes

This must be one the best desserts (if I can call it that) Iโ€™ve made in a while ๐Ÿคฉ. I mean who doesnโ€™t love a Jaffa Cake; right? But after watching and reading a little bit around the history of Palestinian Oranges – thanks to @nadir.nahdi ๐Ÿ™ I knew I was adding this to my ever growing Ramadan list of things to bake and cook ๐Ÿ˜.
.
I loved the different stages that brought these Jaffa Cakes to life and how stunning is the final piece (I was super impressed โ˜บ๏ธ)? Delicate pieces of sponge topped with orange flavoured jelly, covered in dark chocolate and of course my favourite, a sprinkling of crushed pistachios on top. The candied orange slices (homemade, I may add) were literally the โ€˜orangeโ€™ on the โ€˜cakeโ€™ (excuse the pun ๐Ÿ˜†). Make sure to check out the REEL on the previous post ๐Ÿ™Œ.
.
Do go and check out the video @nadir.nahdi, read the history of Palestinian Oranges and give these babies a try ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ.
Thanks to @nadir.nahdi for sharing such a beautiful narration of Palestinian history and the recipe with us. There is also an link to donate to the Palestinian cause!!
