Jam Splits with Vanilla Whipped ‘Cream’

jam split.jpgI grew up with my mother always baking cakes, for both my sister and I to take to school  fetes and parties, and among those bakes were jam splits: welsh cakes with jam in the middle.

The first batch of Welsh cakes that I made on Friday were quite thin, so I didn’t fancy messing around and cutting my welsh cakes open, to have them potentially crumble and break under my heavy hands. Instead, I decided to sandwich them with some vanilla whipped cream and fresh raspberries. I think its safe to say that it’s the best idea  I’ve had in a while. Although, it doesn’t take much persuading on my part to add whipped coconut cream to food and drinks. I just love the stuff.

If you have made my welsh cakes already then this recipe will be even easier for you to create.

Ingredients

  • 2 Welsh Cakes
  • Raspberries
  • Coconut Whipped Cream
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 tbsp Sweetener
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Directions

Take some coconut cream or coconut milk and using an electric whisk, beat the coconut milk/cream until it starts to become light and airy; while doing this whisk in the coconut oil, vanilla and sweetener, and freeze for 10 minutes.

NB: After your coconut cream has been in the freezer it should now act more like dairy whipped cream, as the coconut oil should have solidified.

Take a welsh cake and dollop  some of the coconut whipped cream on top, layer with raspberries and simply top with another welsh cake.

And that’s it.
