How To Make Jelly Cakes Recipe 

Pour boiling water into a large heatproof jug. Sprinkle jelly crystals into a jug, stir until crystals are dissolved, then stir in cold water. 

Pour jelly mixture into a large, shallow dish, about 20 x 25 cm (8 x 10 in), cover and refrigerate for 2-2 1/2 hours, or until jelly is just starting to set.

(It is important that the jelly is used at the right consistency; if it is too firm it will not stick to the cakes.) 

Meanwhile, lightly grease 3 x 12-hole shallow patty pan tins (1 1/2-tablespoon capacity) and preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).

Cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat until just combined. Add flour, milk, and vanilla and mix until smooth.

Spoon tablespoons of the mixture into prepared tins. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.

They’re ready when a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove cakes from tins and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Glue 2 Jelly Cakes together with mock or whipped cream and then roll your cake in the jelly, coating it evenly.

Toss the jelly covered cake in coconut until it’s coated all over. Repeat with remaining cakes and arrange on a platter to serve.
