I made these orange marmalade in a moment of experimentation. I had been playing around with Donna Hay’s sublime Lemon Yoghurt Cake, it’s a wonderful recipe and I just added an orange angle here.
We’d made the orange marmalade ourselves too, just myself, Minnie The Minx and the Thermomix. Too easy.
- 180ml vegetable oil (3/4 cup)
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup 280g thick natural yoghurt
- 385g caster sugar 1 ¾ cups
- 300g 2 cups SR flour
- 50g orange marmalade
Put on the oven to heat at 180°C.
Whisk together oil, eggs, yoghurt and sugar.
Sieve in flour and stir until smooth.
Swirl in the orange marmalade.
Cook for 15 - 20 minutes.
Drizzle a little orange marmalade on top when still warm.
Scoff the lot... err, I mean eat one and watch the children scoff the lot.
Note to self: an orange marmalade butter cream would be great, or a simple lemon icing.
I’ll be doing a bit of running and walking on that treadmill today too.
Not to burn off the cake calories so much as to exercise the old heart and release some happy hormones.
Hope that all is well for you and yours.
