As you all know, I've been cooking with Marmalade this week, thanks to the people from Mackay's and in honor of National Marmalade Week. This will probably be my last post on the subject. I had plans to do a different marmalade recipe each day, but I've been filled up with a horrible cold and sinus/ear infection this week and my plans have had to be shelved. So I've been using all of the recipe prep that I did last week and this is the last one I was able to get done. Nevermind . . . I am ending my Marmalade week with a real winner!
This is a delicious cake . . . a loaf cake. Stogged full of sweet raisins, and a slight marmalade flavour . . . and depending on the quality of the marmalade that you use, lots of little sticky bits of peel scattered throughout.
It's a "sturdy" loaf . . . a "enjoy it with a cup of tea" loaf . . . a "slice and butter" loaf.
It's one of those types of tea/cakes/loaves that just gets better with each day that passes. You won't want to miss out on this one. Get baking!
*Irish Marmalade Cake*Makes one loaf, serving 6 to 8
115g of sultanas (3/4 cup)
Many thanks to the people at Mackays for sending me all these lovely marmalades to cook with! They have been greatly enjoyed.
