Orange Marmalade Cake

Orange Marmalade Cake


"A spicy fragrant Bundt cake with a hint of orange. This is delicious served with a hot cup of tea. When other types of jam are added in place of the marmalade, it's then called a jam cake."

Excellent recipe! I have made this cake many times an enjoy it very much. Most of the time I leave out the walnuts. Sometimes I add a little candied orange or lemon peel and a few golden raisins...

This is a great recipe for special occasions. I, personally, left out the chopped walnuts because my kids can be picky eaters when it comes to nuts. And I made an orange syprup(1 cup orange juic...

Delicous cake, but it stuck to my non-stick Nordic Ware bundt pan even after greasing and flouring. Will make it in a removable rim tube pan next time. The recipe should be increased by 50% to...

I doubled the batter as suggested by others, and this does nicely. If you do this, then I would reduce the oven temp to 325 and bake longer. I started the cake out at 350 and within a half an h...

I liked the cake. A few comments: 1. I added more marmalade, closer to a cup, and the cake was quite moist- was careful not to overbake 2. I thought it was quite sweet, maybe less sugar or a les...

After reading the comments, I doubled the recipe, added orange juice instead of lemon as well as some orange zest and a dash of orange extract, made two square cakes stacked one on top of the ot...

I read the reviews about there not being enough batter, so I cooked these in three 4" springform pans (worked out perfectly) that I recently bought instead of a bundt pan. The texture on this c...
