Marmalade Cake Recipe
This would be a typical tea time treat in Scotland often served with a warm drink such as tea or coffee. The recipe which uses marmalade is a reasonably simple one if you are used to cooking and baking.
Marmalade and Ginger Slice
3 oz caster sugar
4 oz margarine
8 oz self-raising flour
2 beaten eggs
1 drop vanilla essence
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon orange rind, finely grated
Pinch of salt
Pre heat oven to 350F.
Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and rub in the margarine until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar, half the orange rind and then add the eggs, marmalade, milk and vanilla. Mix well to achieve the consistency of thick batter.
Grease a 6 inch round cake tin and bake in the centre of the pre-heated oven for around one hour and twenty minutes until golden brown. If you have one, you can check with a skewer until it comes out clean. Sprinkle the rest of the orange rind on top and allow to cool for a few minutes before you turn out on a wire rack to cool.
As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
