  • Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad!

    Apt quote on the Jaffa Cake debate.

    I'm just picturing trying to put candles in one and presenting it to one of my kids on their birthday. Wouldn't end well!




  • But who makes the best Jaffa cakes? They aren't uniform in nature with different companies making them with different tastes and texture.

    Correct, any of them bar mcvities can take a hike




  • – Jaffa cakes follow the same basic ingredients of a cake, including egg, flour, and sugar mixture which was aerated on cooking and was the same as a traditional sponge cake.
    – The ingredients mix to make a thin batter rather than the thicker dough expected for a biscuit texture.
    – Cakes are expected to be soft and friable while biscuits are supposed to be crispy and able to be snapped.
    – Jaffa cakes have the same soft texture of sponge cake.
    – A Jaffa cake will go hard when it’s stale, like a cake, while biscuits go soft

    Most importantly, they’re cheaper because the tax man deems them to be a cake.

    “The Irish Revenue Commissioners also regard Jaffa cakes as cakes, since their moisture content is greater than 12%. As a result, they are charged the reduced rate of VAT (13.5% as of 2016).”




  • Which kimberleys specifically? ......... This is important. Lol

  • I think I'm with P on this...It contains sponge(like in a trifle, which is cake) jelly & chocolate...I don't really consider it a biscuit.

    Trifle is not cake!! :D

    Now this is genuine research. All the evidence, whether anecdotal or empirical, points to cake. :)




  • Jaffa cakes are cakes the same way a peanut is a nut and a tomato is a fruit.




  • Thanks for the questions all week folks, I’ll have the new victim along this evening.

    Ah you're not off the hook yet are you? Well sure ignore these if you are (I've already had a go anyway), but I'll add them in case.

    What sportsperson (living or dead) would you pick to meet/go for a pint with?

    Ever daydream about doing something completely different career-wise? If so what would it be?

    So do you dunk your jaffa cakes?? :D




  • Certainly won’t ignore,

    What sportsperson (living or dead) would you pick to meet/go for a pint with?

    Terry Fox, to see what made him so determined to do the Race across Canada. He died a young man but he taught people a lot older than him a thing or to. An inspiring person.

    Ever daydream about doing something completely different career-wise? If so what would it be?

    Professional sportsperson, I always dreamt of playing in the NBA as a young fella so probably shooting guard for the Chicago Bulls.

    So do you dunk your jaffa cakes?? :D

    Nope, one mouthful and gone!!

    Wow, have to admit I hadn't a clue who that was but I've just read up - unbelievable. I can see why you'd want to spend an evening with him alright. Incredible that he made it so far too, seriously inspiring.
