Another Cake

This recipe is for Sticky Marmalade Cake, a cake that I make regularly and it is so easy.


225g self raising flour
175g caster sugar
175g butter or margarine
3 eggs
2tsp ground ginger
1tsp mixed spice
1/3 jar orange marmalade
1tsp baking powder

Firstly heat the oven gas 4 / 350 F / 180 C then line a loaf tin with baking parchment.

Next put all of the other ingredients (except 1 dessert spoon of the marmalade) into a bowl and mix together, this is easier with an electric whisk.

Once mixed, pour into your lined loaf tin and put in the oven for about 1 hour. Once cooked, cool for a few minutes in the tin, then turn out onto a cooling rack. Once the cake has cooled then put the reserved marmalade into a small saucepan and heat gently until syrupy then brush the marmalade over the top of the cake to make a sticky topping. Lovely with a cup of tea.
