Mmmmmmmm Cake

Found a recipe to use up some of the jars of home made marmalade that have been stored since 2017. I don't eat it often because of eating less bread.
Also need to make use of the loaf tin liners that I won at the Bacton Produce show last year.

Sticky Marmalade Tealoaf

140g or approx third of a jar of marmalade
175g softened butter
175g light muscovado (brown) sugar
3 eggs, beaten
225g SR Flour
1tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground ginger ( I just used one as I was using orange and ginger marmalade)
1tsp mixed spice
100g chopped pecan nuts (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 180C/Gas4/Fanoven160C
Set aside 1 tablespoon of the marmalade in a cup or saucepan
Mix everything else together and  tip into prepared 2lb/1kg loaf tin and smooth the top.
Bake for  1 - 1¼ hours until a skewer comes out clean......... cover the top with foil for the last 15 minutes.
Warm the remaining marmalade in a microwave or on the hob until its soft then brush over the cake while it's still hot.

I'll add the recipe to the separate recipe page

This might be a good cake to make when I have to take cakes to WI.

Many thanks for comments about Thornham Parva church. It's not far from home yet on a road that I would never have used so wouldn't have found it except for this blog. It was such a welcoming little church and the movement sensor lights are an easy idea that other churches could copy.

Welcome to another person clicking the follower button, I'm hoping for 500 by the end of the year!

Back Tomorrow


  1. That does sound tasty. I think I'll make some later today, as we've almost finished the fruit loaf I made at the weekend. Thanks for the recipe. X

  2. Oh yum that cake sounds lovely. Shame I haven't got any homemade marmalade left. In fact, the last marmalade I made was one of your ideas...Mamade with a tin of grapefruit added, it was delicious. Unfortunately, husband's not allowed grapefruit anymore because of his medication.

  3. Paddington Bear would definitely approve! It looks wonderful.

  4. Mmmm - cake! Cake is off the plan at the moment but when I reach target maybe a bit now and again would work for me. Your cake looks wonderfuyl so I've copied off the recipe - hope that's OK.

    1. That is the problem with making cakes - I have to eat them!

  5. looks and sounds delicious, perfect timing as the last slice of cake mysteriously vanished while my back was turned yesterday.

  6. Your cake looks delicious. I am going to Knit and Natter today we have it in the small garden centre in the village we usually make for charity. The lady who runs it makes cakes I always buy a piece for my afternoon tea.

  7. Cake looks delicious! I've used up my excess marmalade to make Orange Chicken. Recipe on my blog or loads of recipes on Pinterest :-)

  8. found several jars of marmalade at the back of the cupboard so this is an idea , i also got a jar of some posh chocolate orange marmalade for xmas that is just wrong somehow, it might be better in a cake

    1. I'm not sure about the sound of chocolate orange marmalade either. One or the other - yes.

  9. It looks wonderfully sticky and a great way to use up the old marmalade.

  10. I'll be trying that cake! Sounds delicious.. Thanks for sharing.

  11. That’s my kind of cake, Sue. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  12. Oh my that looks so nice.
    At the moment I am waiting for a mincemeat cake to come out of the oven which I love but I think my next cake will be this one. Thanks for the recipe.

  13. Sounds and looks wonderful, what a great cake to use up excess marmalade.

  14. That sounds delicious. I usually make a marmalade and chocolate cake but the ginger would be good.

  15. This sounds like a lovely way to use up that marmalade. Enjoy.

    God bless.

  16. This sounds wonderful, especially if made with a nice tangy orange marmalade. I think I'll have to give it a go :-)
