Jaffa Sponge Cake with Orange Curd 香橙巧克力海绵蛋糕和香橙酱

Earlier i saw my Instagram friend sharing a round and big sponge cake that using my earlier cold eggs of Orange sponge cupcake recipe, Her cake turned out to be nice and no shrinkage. So i  use this method to make into this Jaffa sponge cake with orange curd for my little son's Birthday.





This recipe is using cold egg and beating whole egg method. Using this type of straight forward method, you will have slightly dry and rough texture than chiffon method which use egg separation. Anyway it still tasted ok thought! I especially love the chocolate sponge cake, it was steady, light and spongy!

The first time i knew about Jaffa cake flavour was at Helena's kitchen. Jaffa cake has two flavours, orange and chocolate.

Apply a thin layer of orange curd on each sponge cake slice.

This Birthday cake was well received by my son and his friends as it tasted more on sweet side ^_^
