Marmalade Cake

With all my marmalade making, I have a surplus; in particular, I have a batch which didn’t set well. No worries – no waste.

Ingredients [quantities for my 2lb loaf tin]

  • 285g/10oz self-raising flour
  • 170g/6oz sugar
  • 170g/6oz butter or margarine
  • 3 eggs
  • 3-4 large tbsps marmalade
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • sesame seed to sprinkle


  • Pre-heat the oven to 170C/350F/Gas Mark 3.
  • Cream the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one by one, mixing well with a little of the flour to stop the mixture curdling. Beat well, and mix in the marmalade.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, and salt; fold in. Put mixture into a greased loaf tin, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and a little sugar.
  • Bake for about an hour and a half, until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
