How to Jam #6: Marmalade Cake
This cake is delicious and simple, plus it incorporates jam! MARMALADE AND OLIVE OIL CAKE
1. Heat oven to 350°. Grease a 10" round cake pan with butter and dust with flour; line pan bottom with parchment paper cut to fit. Set pan aside. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a big bowl and set aside. Add remaining sugar, reserved flour mixture, vanilla, marmalade and eggs and whisk until incorporated (you can use a food processor too or beaters), about 2 minutes. Add olive oil; whisk until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan; bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 40–45 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes or so.
3. In a small bowl, whisk orange juice and confectioners' sugar to make a thin glaze. Remove cake from pan and transfer to a cake stand or plate. Using a pastry brush, brush orange glaze over top and sides of cake; let cool completely. Garnish cake with salt.
*note: you can also make your own marmalade or simply simmer orange peel with water & a teaspoon of sugar and use that. You can also use meyer lemon marmalade and lemon juice as a glaze.
