Red Folder Recipe – Teacakes
Move over Mallow Puffs, Tunnock’s Teacakes were here first! A spectacular little cake for a special occasion.
Chocolate, soft marshmallow and vanilla biscuit, this teacake deserves a plate, small fork and fifteen minutes of your unadulterated time. I will confess that it is messy and makes my arm burn with the 10-15 mins whisking by hand, but that is all forgotten and forgiven in the eating.
I have been making a version of this for years, a young Chef shared both a teacake and a jaffa cake recipe with me once. I came upon the below recipe in Peyton and Byrne’s British Baking book. I had borrowed it from the Library looking for a good fig roll recipe, so to find this was a gift. I pass it on now. This version is a wobbly replica of the silky smooth domes, wrapped in red foil I loved as a kid. Enjoy.
