Now that Jennie is turning into her grandmother and preserving everything in sight, she is getting a bit overwhelmed with marmalade (even when she takes Christmas presents out of the equation) so she asked if I had any bright ideas on how to use it other than on toast! The following is an old recipe which I used a lot when I used to make great batches of cakes. (I try not to make them too much now in the hopes of regaining a waist line 🙂

Jam or Marmalade cake

6ozs margarine

6oz caster sugar

3 eggs

1 tsp lemon juice

8ozs S R flour

3tbsp milk

12ozs jam or marmalade

1) Grease and line 6 1/2″ cake tin or small loaf tin

2) cream fat and sugar

3) Add beaten eggs

4) Add lemon juice and stir in milk and fold in flour

5) mix in jam or marmalade

6) Pour into tin

7) Bake 160c about 1-1 1/2 hours

Hope it still works!
