Vanilla Cakes

Tips For Making Jelly Cakes In The Thermomix

  • Jelly cakes are best served on the same day that you prepare them. Alternatively you can cook the cakes ahead of time and coat them in jelly/coconut and fill with whipped cream on the day.
  • Classically, raspberry jelly crystals have been used to make jelly cakes, however you can change up the jelly flavour if you like.
  • Allow the jelly to thicken for 1-2 hours in the fridge before dipping the cakes in (this will help the jelly to hold onto the cakes better).
  • Use desiccated coconut (not shredded) to coat the cakes.

  1. Was this meant for mini cupcake tins? Or 1x 12 cupcake tin?. I wasn’t even able to fill one 12 cupcake tray. So thought maybe half fill but that wasn’t enough either?.
