Easy Sticky Orange Marmalade Loaf

Easy Sticky Orange Marmalade Loaf

We love a cake at EasyPeasyLemonSqueezy and it seems you do too! The 2 most popular cakes on this blog are Cherry Madeira  and Freda’s Apple & Fruit Loaf  along with many others that I’ll pop around this post. It seems that we all still love a slice of traditional cake!

What I have realised  that we have nothing really that orangey?  So here goes, I thought I’d share with you my Easy Sticky Orange Marmalade Loaf. I really hope you like it?! Do you like Marmalade? If you do,  you’ll love this, it certainly packs a marmalade punch, in a cake.

You can eat it warm with custard, ice cream or cream or let it cool completely and have it cold with a nice cuppa!

Lets me know if you try this lovely Orange Marmalade Cake – I so love to get your comments, really I do

Thanks Clare x


  • 2 Oranges (one sliced thinly, one for zest and juice)
  • 50g Demerara Sugar
  • 175g Butter, at room temp
  • 175g Caster sugar
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 220g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 125g Orange Marmalade


  • 75ml Orange juice (see above)
  • 75g caster sugar

Preparation Method

  1. Pre-Heat the oven to Gas 4 / 180C
  2. Grease a 2lb / 900g loaf tin
  3. Sprinkle the base of the greased loaf tin with the Demerara Sugar
  4. Thinly slice one of the oranges – and place along the bottom of the loaf tin – slightly overlapping (see picture) – you probably won’t need all the orange
  5. Cream your butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  6. Add one egg at a time beating well, don’t worry if it curdles a little just keep mixing and add a tablespoon of the flour. -Squeeze the remaining bit of orange juice into your cake mix
  7. Then add the baking powder and flour, mix well
  8. Finally stir in the marmalade – mix through
  9. Pop mix into tin, smooth top and bake on the middle shelf for approx. 40 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean  – watch the top make sure it doesn’t burn – if it browns too quickly pop a piece of foil loosely over then top
  10. Whilst it bakes, make the syrup by purring the orange juice and caster sugar into a pan and heat string until the sugar is dissolved – set aside
  11. Remove from oven and leave in the tin to cool slightly (10 minutes)
  12. Very carefully tip out onto a wire tray Leave to cool for a further 10 minutes
  13. Skewer the cake and drizzle the orange / sugar syrup over the top
  14.  Then enjoy warm with custard, cream or ice-cream or cold with a cuppa!

Great classic style of cake. It sounds a delight to me. I love marmalade but I'm the only one round here and I'm still trying to use up the batch I made two years ago.
