How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 160c.
  • In a small saucepan gently heat the marmalade with the juice of the orange until it liquifies. Remove from the heat and beat in the buttermilk or yogurt. If you are using fresh orange juice instead of marmalade, let it boil rapidly for a minute or two to thicken and reduce it, then beat in the yogurt/buttermilk. Leave to cool.
  • Using an electric whisk, beat together all the other ingredients in a large bowl until smooth. This should just take a minute or two. Quickly beat in the orange/buttermilk mixture.
  • Pour into a greased and lined loaf tin.
  • Sprinkle over the blueberries if using.
  • Bake for about an hour or until a skewer comes out fairly clean (this is a moist cake so it won’t be as clean as say, a chocolate cake).
  • Leave to cool for 10 minutes, gently remove from the tin and leave to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • Enjoy as it is or with cream, custard or, as my husband predictably suggests, ice cream!
