Recipe: Marmalade Cake

My friends J and J make the most delicious marmalade. Just the thing for this quick and easy cake. I’ve had the recipe scrawled in my notebook for so many years I’ve no idea where it came from. It’s my Sunday afternoon “bung a cake in the oven” kind of recipe, no frills, no fuss just 8 slices of lovely cake in time for tea. Equally delicious cold, or serve it warm with a dollop of creme fraiche.

Ingredients:

200g plain flour

1tsp baking powder

100g soft butter

75g soft brown sugar

2 large eggs

4 tablespoons marmalade ( a great way to use leftovers or use your favourite)

Method

Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz for 15 – 20 seconds. Pour into a smallish loaf tin (lined) and cook at gas mark 5 for 40 mins to an hour (depends on your oven). It’s cooked when it has begun to shrink from the sides and a skewer comes out clean when pushed into the centre. Will keep for several days in an airtight tin –  but to be honest it never makes it to the tin in our house – unless I double the recipe and hide one before the family see it!

  2. I want to try this cake, but what does “bung a cake in the oven” mean? I know all the words in the phrase except for “bung.”

    It’s English slang for “put it in the oven”!!”

  • Today I have been planning recipes, working on new design commissions - and tidying my small, but perfectly formed  stash of beautiful British wool!

A bit philosophical for a wet Tuesday morning, felt the need to remind myself there is beauty in the ordinary.

One of the joys of our holiday this year was stumbling across the unexpected. We walked past a garden fence covered in these flowers & their ripening fruit. In my schoolgirl French I asked the elderly gentleman if I could take a photo, in better English than my French he invited us in to admire his plot. You can read more about him on the blog, where I've also been writing about how having too much can be a good thing - even if you're a minimalist!

Finally got a photo of me wearing my new sweatshirt, bought from @mirandagorebrowne I ♥♥♥ it so much. The fabric is soft, it fits really well and now washed 3 times it still looks like new! Go buy one before they sell out (also available: "nice buns" & "jammy dodger")
