Recipe: Marmalade cake

These delicious recipes from Asda prove that vegetables don’t have to be a mere side dish, they can take centre stage on the plate too

What you'll need

250g self-raising flour

2 level tsp baking powder

1 level tsp mixed spice

150g Asda sultanas

150g Asda dried apricots, cut into small pieces

175g butter, softened

150g caster sugar

Grated zest of 1 orange

3 large Skea free-range eggs

75g thick-cut orange marmalade, plus 3 level tbsp for glazing

Makes 12 slices

Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 4/350°C. Line a 33 x 23cm shallow tin with baking paper.

Sift the flour, baking powder and mixed spice into a large bowl. Stir in the sultanas and apricots.

Add the butter, sugar, orange zest, eggs and 75g marmalade. Beat together until evenly mixed

Put the mixture in the tin and level the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the middle of the cake springs back when lightly pressed.

Heat 3 level tbsp marmalade in a small pan until melted and brush on top of the hot cake. Cool on a wire rack.
