So pleased the Great British Bake Off did well in the TV awards! During January my mind always turns to Marmalade, must be the Seville oranges that appear in the greengrocers. And I always have to tell myself not to make any as we just don’t consume enough of it. I had half a jar in the cupboard, and all of a sudden this week I fancied a marmalade cake. Time to turn to my Mary Berry cookery book. This one is YUM!
Cake tin 12 x 9 inch or 30x23cm, greased and bottom lined with baking parchement
Oven at 180C (fan 160C) gas 4
175g soft butter
175g caster sugar
175g currants- I didn’t have any so used up the dried cranberries
3 large eggs
250g SR flour
11/2 tsp baking powder
50g glace cherries
2 level tbsp marmalade
3 tbsp milk
I creamed the butter and sugar, then added the eggs one at a time then the rest of the ingredients. Put in tin and bake for 40-45 minutes.
Mr E liked it so much he had TWO pieces! Maybe not as marmaladey as I would have liked but jolly nice after a walk with a cup of tea.
Would love to hear of any other marmalade recipes, if you have any.
