Great British Bake Off winner creates world’s largest Jaffa Cake

Polishing off a box of Jaffa Cakes can take little-to-no effort but you might want to think twice before attempting to devour this one.

Measuring a massive four feet in diameter, this chocolatey treat is officially the largest Jaffa Cake in the world, beating the previous record-holder (which was over a foot smaller).

Created by 2013 Great British Bake Off winner Frances Quinn and Hambleton Bakery in Exton, they were tasked by BBC Radio 4 to create an enormous version of the treat to settle the debate: “Are Jaffa Cakes a cake or a biscuit?”

But, it was no mean feat.

Nearly 23 times as large as a normal Jaffa Cake, this one required six kilograms each of butter, sugar and flour, three litres of marmalade, nine litres of orange jelly, 120 eggs and an enormous 20 kilograms of melted dark chocolate.

“Willy Wonka had nothing on us,” Quinn said.

This isn’t the first time people have tackled mammoth-sized munchies though.

In 2012, the Guinness World Record for the largest pizza measured at a huge 1,262 square metres while the US hold the title for creating the biggest cookie with a diameter of 101 feet
