Orange Marmalade Cake


Orange Marmalade cake

Buttery and citrus flavored marmalade cake, it was at instant hit and my family loved it.There was no specific recipe. I just used an ordinary cake recipe and gave extra flavor with orange juice, orange marmalade and wine.Adding wine is optional,I had some leftover after I made Christmas plum cake and so added into this cake.You can substitute it with buttermilk.I had actually prepared a orange syrup( orange juice and sugar) to drench cake layers,but the wine and orange juice had already made the cake moist and super flavorful so I did not use the syrup. Try this cake,you will surely love it.

Ingredients

Flour- 2 1/2 cup
Baking powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Eggs- 3
Sugar- 3/4 cup
Butter- 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence-1 tsp
Wine- 1/2 cup
( or you can use 1/2 cup butter milk)
Zest of one lemon
Juice of one lemon
Orange marmalade- 1/3 cup
(I used the store brought one-use 1 tsp for the cake and rest to spread on top of the cake)


In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.Shift flour and keep aside.Preheat oven to 350 degree F.Prepare cake tin by buttering and lining with parchment paper.

In a small mixing bowl, stir in the juice of one lemon, zest of one lemon, orange marmalade and wine and set aside. 
Using a hand mixer beat room temperature butter till soft and fluffy. Add little by little of sugar till it blends well and becomes a pale color. Beat for about three to four minute. Now add one egg at a time and continue to beat in high speed till it is well blended,light and fluffy.Add vanilla essence. With a spatula fold in 1/3 of the flour mixture and little of the orange juice wine mixture.Gently fold and continue the same process till all the dry and wet ingredients are well incorporated.
 Pour into prepared cake tin. Even it using the spatula spread it evenly in the pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes or till the tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cake completely. Decorate the cake as you desire. If you wish you can do a cream frosting and use orange marmalade as a filling. I just spread a layer of marmalade on top of the cake. 


 Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
