This Jammie Dodgers Traybake Cake is a very simple cake to make. A vanilla sponge containing freeze dried raspberries and raspberry jam, topped with the classic jammy Dodger biscuits this cake would be great for bake sales and coffee mornings.
I have seen a few recipes recently using Jammie Dodger biscuits and it got me thinking that I would like to create one of my own. Therefore, over the weekend, as half term drew to an end, my youngest son and I did a spot of baking and this Jammie Dodgers Traybake Cake was made.
I actually made this cake back in July for a friend’s husband, but what with the holidays and the my #GBBOBloggers2016 bake along I have a few bakes that I have not yet posted, which is why I will be featuring them over the next few weeks!
I totally made this Jammy Dodger Funfetti Sprinkles cake design on a whim. My friend said that her husband liked a Victoria sponge with jam and buttercream, which was a relatively easy cake to make. BUT this is me and I don’t like to just offer someone a Victoria Sponge for a commissioned birthday cake – oh no! No, I like to add my own spin on it and when I was delving into my cupboard, I found some unopened packets of jammy dodgers, that I had bought a few weeks earlier for the boys as they were on a deal at Poundland (3 for £1 – what a bargain! Except, it was not a bargain as the boys did not like them!), and some sprinkles. I figured, and hoped, that being a fan of jam cake the recipient would also be a fan of jammy biscuits and everyone likes sprinkles don’t they?
