It's Monday again


And now for me-me Monday, here goes...

4. I also love jaffa cakes.

This is an easy me-me for me to do, just click here and find out all about the wonderful jaffa cake........

I love them so much I joined the fan-club.

Oh the jaffa cake is such a controversial treat. Is it a cake or is it a biscuit? Opinions are often divided on how best to define this most heavenly of afternoon snacks. It's found lurking in the biscuit aisle, not the cake aisle, and yet it has that lovely spongy base not commonly found in a biscuit.

How I love the mighty jaffa cake. There are, of course, several methods with which to enjoy it's sweetness. You can take the full moon, half moon, total eclipse method. You can of course go straight from full moon to total eclipse when in desperate need. Or you can nibble. Nibbling has to be my favourite method. Delicately playing, nipping away the edge until all that remains is that sticky orange centre, glued to the sponge, with the thin but perfect layer of dark chocolate just waiting to be licked away. Once, and only once, I managed the ultimate nibbling experience. First the outer circle was consumed in tiny, butterfly bites. Then, using my lower teeth, I scraped off the sponge from the bottom. Oh and then, licking the chocolate off the top. Finally succummbing to the orange jelly in the middle, sucking it into oblivion.

Jaffa cake, you are indeed the mightiest of the mighty.

One day I will learn to stop at one....
