1. Preheat your oven to 160C/350F 2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, almond flour, baking powder & baking soda, give it a good mix 3. Pour in the butter/coconut oil, maple and milk. Mix to combine. 4. Lightly oil a mini muffin tray and transfer 1/2 tbsp of the batter into each of the muffin tray cups ( if you are using a normal muffin tray you will need about 1 tbsp) 5. Bake for 10 minutes. Leave to cool completely and remove from the tray onto a cooling rack

To make the orange jelly

1. Add all the jelly ingredients into a small saucepan and give it a good whisk.

2. Cook on a medium heat until it starts to boil for about 3 minutes

3. Pour into a plate or tray and place in the fridge to set

4. Once the jelly has set use a small cutter (smaller than the base sponge) to cut small circles of jelly


  1. Fill a pan with water half way and place on high heat on the stove.

  2. Place your chocolate into a heatproof bowl and place ontop of the pan ( make sure the water is not touching the bowl with the chocolate.

  3. Heat till chocolate melts

To assemble 1. Top each base with a jelly ring

2. Drizzle melted chocolate on top

3. Transfer to the fridge and leave for about 10 minutes until the chocolate has set

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days ( if they last that long!!)
