Loaf cakes are a very easy way to get your cake fix.


Heat your oven to 160c

Line a loaf tin with baking paper

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl with the fruits/zest

Melt the butter and 2 tbsp marmalade until dissolved and liquid, then stir in the milk and vinegar and mix well

Pour into the dry bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon

Pour into the loaf tin and bake for 1 hour, check with a skewer to ensure its cooked

Meanwhile, make the glaze by heating up the remaining marmalade, liquor and icing sugar, bubble and simmer for 2-3 mins to get thick and syrupy

Pour this over the cake when it’s cooked and then sprinkle the sugar evenly over the top

Leave to cool in the tin and then slice carefully into 8ish slices and serve
