Ronald Weasley is arguably one of the more underrated wizards of the Harry Potter universe. While he's not particularly talented at...anything, he still gets the girl in the end. Ron always means well, but I don't think that baking is his forte - so I'm inclined to believe that Mrs. Weasley was the one whipping up Harry's birthday cakes and mince meat pies.

Ron was always a huge fan of candy and who can blame him with how amazing wizarding candy is!

I was able to snag some of the official Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans, Fizzing Whizzbees, Fudge Flies, Chocolate Frogs, Sugar Quills, and more while I visited Hogsmeade and Weasley's Wizard Wheezes at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter last summer.

First, line two ramekins with parchment paper and spray the edges with cooking oil.

Then use a stand mixer to combine the sugar and butter.

Beat in the eggs one at a time. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, then slowly add to the batter. Mix on medium until a smooth batter forms.

Measure about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of batter into each ramekin and cook at 350 F until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let the cakes rest in the ramekins for about 10 minutes before flipping out onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Spread the jams on each cake then sandwich them together to make a sponge cake sandwich!
