I regard the original, small round Jaffa Cakes to be a biscuit. However, these days, you can buy them in cake form... in bars. I prefer the original though... not too much sponge and the sponge is crispy. Lots of orange flavour too. I like!!! :-)

Lol.. I've just read that they're popular snacks classed as cakes for the purpose of taxation but due to the high number in a pack, they're generally sold in the biscuit section of a shop. There are also a few spinoffs. Have a look at the link in the next response. lol.

Lol... yes they're very nice orange flavoured biscuits with a chocolate coating on top. See.... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaffa_Cake You'll find more information in there, and if you have problems getting there, just type Jaffa Cakes in your search bar and it will give you links.
