Marmalade Cake

Thursday, April 13, 2017

Marmalade cake always reminds me of Esther's famous marmalade cake from the Mitford series. This cake is quite similar, just a bit less time consuming. I would recommend cozying up with a slice of this cake whilst reading Mitford!

Marmalade Cake adapted from Epicurious

1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
4 tsp grated orange zest
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease an 8-inch round cake pan.

In a bowl, combine the butter and sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Beat in the sour cream and orange juice. Add in the flour, salt and baking soda and beat until just combined.

Pour batter into cake pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool for 20 minutes on a rack and then carefully invert the cake. Let cool for an hour and then spread marmalade over the top of the cake.
