Method

  • Preheat oven to 170c and prepare a cake tin.
  • Cream together butter and sugar.
  • Mix in the three eggs.
  • Add the Marmalade and mix in until fairly smooth.
  • Finally stir in the flour until you have a smooth batter.
  • Pour into the cake tin and bake for 50 minutes.
  • Once baked remove from oven and leave to cool in tin for approx 10 minutes whilst you make the topping.
  • Add the marmalade to the juice of one lemon and microwave for 20-30 seconds until the marmalade mixes into the lemon juice to form a sauce. It will be  bit lumpy but that doesn’t matter.
  • Mix in icing sugar to taste.
  • Turn the cake out onto a plate and whilst warm use a fork to prick lots of small holes into the top of the cake.
  • Cover with the sticky drizzle mix and leave to cool.
