Marmalade and Ginger Cake

by Landscape |

Serves 8

120g orange marmalade, plus 2 tbsp for topping

40g root ginger, peeled and grated

60g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing

150g caster sugar

1 egg

150ml boiling water plus 40ml boiling water for topping

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

200g self-raising flour, sifted

Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5 and grease and line a 20cm round cake tin. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter into the sugar with the back of a wooden spoon. Beat in the 120g marmalade and egg, then mix in 150ml boiling water. Stir in the ginger, bicarbonate of soda and flour until combined.

Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 30 mins until risen, golden on the top and firm to touch. Allow to cool slightly. Then, using a fork, make holes in the top of the cake. Place the 2 tbsp of marmalade into a jug and add 40ml boiling water. Stir thoroughly, then pour over the cake.

Allow the cake to cool completely before removing from the tin and transferring to a plate. Slice and serve.
