These were always a "Sunday treat" when I was a kid, or rather slices of a full sized Battenberg were.
The Battenberg cake is another one of those quintessentially British food items, being a pink and yellow sponge cake made up of 4 alternate colored squares held together with a thin sweet glue of apricot jam and then covered with a layer of rich marzipan.

These cakes are truly delicious but they do have a relatively short shelf-life so eat 'em up quickly!

For those who may be unfamiliar with the chequered history of this product, this confection was originally designed in secret in an attempt to assassinate the Baron von Battenberg who, despite his jovial appearance in photographs, was quite a nasty piece of work intent on destabilizing late Victorian Europe. Robert Welles and Agnes Bertha Marshall, both in the employ of The Covert Culinary Operatives (a little-known forerunner of the now defunct British intelligence agency E110) were passed information that the Baron had an "unhealthy addiction to nuts, especially almonds", which they combined with the poorly kept secret that he was a diabetic, into a cunning plan, codenamed "Sunset Yellow" . Through 1898, working independently so as to avoid suspicion, they perfected a highly sugared cake covered with rich almond paste that they knew he would be unable to resist. The culmination of their secretive baking was the Battenberg, a combination of Welles' "Neapolitan Roll" and Marshall's "Domino Cake"
When presented with this delicacy at the opening festival of "Der große und wichtige Tanz der Esel" in 1899, the Count was immediately hooked.

I lived in the UK for 5 years and can remember first seeing Battenberg in a local cafe that featured homemade dessert cake slices. I was fascinated and asked my partner what it was. Well, the minute I heard marzipan, I HAD to try it and the rest is history.

I often made my own which is roughly the size of a loaf cake and received raves for ''making an especially lush'' cake. BUT I didn't always want the hassle of doing my own. Enter my old chum Mr. Kipling and his exceedingly good cakes. Yes, they are and I was known to hide away with a box of 5 little Battenbergs, polishing them off in an evening. I am so happy to see them here. They are very sweet and worth every ounce!

Positively addictive!

I love Battenburg cakes so much that I make them myself and they come out perfect every time. A few months ago I found a website called Fantes, they sell Battenburg cake tins, yeah! They sell so many kitchen things.

You go on the Fantes site select 'Cake Pans'. Choose 'Square and Rectangular Pans'. Keep scrolling down until you see a picture of a Battenburg Cake, with the pink and yellow squares. It will say 'Silverwood Battenburg Cake Pan'. If you like to bake you'll love these. I bought two, and put them side by side, in my Euro Pro convection oven, which is a bit larger than the usual roaster toaster oven. I'd searched for years until I came accross these cake pans.

If you're not into baking, try these ready made Battenburg cakes, you won't be disappointed, they are absolutely delicious. The yummy sponges stuck together with apricot jam and covered with marzipan, Mmmmm you're in for a treat. I'm making my mouth water!

The chefs of the British Royal family were introduced to the German style of cake making, during Queen Victoria's reign. The first Battenburg cake was made in that German style to celebrate the wedding of Queen Victoria's Granddaughter's Princess Victoria of Hesse and by Rhine, and was named after her husband to be Prince Louis of Battenburg.

These yummy Battenburg cakes are readily available all over the UK in supermarkets. I'm happy to see them here on Amazon.

We stumbled across Mr. Kipling's Mini Battenbergs 5 Pack on a recent trip to Scotland. They are incredibly moist and flavorful -- the almond paste wrap is what really makes them, but the cake itself is excellent, and the little bit of apricot jam between the squares is the crowning touch. They are pretty as well. Each battenberg could be sliced in squares and served at a tea party. My opinion is that once you taste one, they won't be around long enough to serve to guests.

I got these as a Valentine's Day gift for my wife, who says they were delicious. For those unfamiliar with Battenberg cakes, each of these consists of four little sponge cakes glued together in a checkerboard pattern with jam and the whole thing is covered with almond paste. These have been popular with afternoon tea in the UK for many years.

I purchased this as a gift for my girlfriend. After living in England for a few years, this is one thing she missed the most.
It shipped on time, and tastes great!

Battenberg cakes are hard to find in Canada, even in Toronto. I loved the quality of the product (I had sampled it in England earlier this year), the convenience of ordering it via Amazon and the speed of delivery from the UK.

All in all, a great shopping experience leaving a delighted customer - I will definitely be ordering more Battenberg cakes shortly, as these ones (unfortunately) did not last very long!
