Marvellous Marmalade Pudding Cake


This marvellous pudding adapted from Nigella Kitchen is perfect homey simplicity and is jam-packed with an intense marmalade flavour and  quick and easy to prepare.

Serves: 8


  • 250 g soft unsalted butter (plus some for greasing)
  • 75 g castor sugar
  • 75 g light brown sugar
  • 150 g marmalade *Old Fashioned Marmalade
  • 225 g cake flour
  • ½ tsp bicarb
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • Juice of 1 orange

For the glaze


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and butter a 24cm ovenproof dish. Put the 100 g marmalade and juice of 1 orange into a small pan and set aside to make a glaze later.

2. Cream the butter and both sugars by hand or in a freestanding mixer.

3. Beat in the marmalade followed by the dry ingredients, then the eggs and finally the orange juice.

4. Place in the oven and cook for about 40 minutes – though give a first check after ½ hour – by which time the sponge mixture will have risen and a cake tester will come out clean. Remove from the oven and leave in the dish.

5. Warm the glaze mixture in the pan until melted together, then paint the top of the sponge.

6. Serve warm with a jug of custard or cream.
