Jaffa Cakes are very moist spongy cakes with a subtle citrus flavor and an intense orange-chocolate contrast. I love eating them for breakfast, especially with a cup of coffee!

Jewish Apple cake

This is a very popular, old-fashioned dessert. It’s also called “Polish apple cake” or “Ukrainian apple cake.” It goes by many names, but it is delicious with either a cup of tea or coffee and especially with fruit salad.It is made in an 13x9x2 baking dish with a layer of sweet apples and a layer of bread crumbs and cinnamon.

Jumble is a type of chewy, creamy caramel bar. The name comes from the fact that they are made in small batches on a jumble (or doughnut) machine.It is traditionally wrapped in paper and sold in layers of three covered in chocolate, although there are also some commercial varieties which don’t come wrapped in paper. Jumbles are very popular with children, and they are quite simple to make at home.
