J is for Jaffa Cake
Yes, I know. You know about Hob Nobs and Cadbury’s, you may even drink tea like the British do, but I’m betting you don’t know what a Jaffa Cake is, and that okay. Great, even. Because once you know, and you actually taste one, you’ll be dreaming about them, and worse, eating them constantly. It takes at least three weeks to kick the habit. It’s bad. These fascinating little cookies have a layer of yellow cake, with a strip of orange jelly on top, covered in dark chocolate. The description doesn’t do them justice. But next time you are shopping, and you come across the ‘International’ aisle, or, rather quaintly, the ‘exotic foods’ section (that’s in a Stop and Shop in CT), pick up a pack of Jaffa cakes. Double dog dare you. Or, make them from this lovely British recipe:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/homemadejaffacakes_91480 
Oh yes, you’re going DOWN!
