Lately, Orange Marmalade has been everybody’s favorite at home. It was my elder sister, who came up with the idea of using it to bake a cake. I thought I could give it a try. Turns out, the cake did show good results. It was a happy ending indeed. 🙂 I feel it makes a perfect tea cake.
This is what you will need:-
ORANGE MARMALADE CAKE
- 1 cup refined flour
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- ¾ cup unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp orange marmalade (you can vary your quantity here by a tsp more or less)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch baking soda
- ½ cup orange tang solution (3 tsp tang: ½ cup hot water so that it dissolves quickly)
Step- 1 Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees centigrade. Grease your baking tin and keep aside.
Step- 2 In a bowl sift refined flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Step- 3 In another bowl whisk sugar and unsalted butter together. Add orange marmalade and mix well.
Step- 4 Add in the orange tang solution and flour mixture. Combine well.
Step- 5 Pour the batter into your baking tin.
Place it into the pre-heated oven for 30 minutes (time may vary a little)
There you go!! This cake turned out to be light and moist. Taking an easy way out, I sprinkled some icing sugar.
To have it like a dessert, I drizzled some melted fine dark orange chocolate.
Definitely an icing on a cake.. 😀
