Marmalade Butter Cake

A lovely butter cake using marmalade.  The texture is fine, soft, moist and buttery, not too sweet eventhough with marmalade [home-made].  This recipe is for keeps and it should be easy for me to bake this often as I make marmalade [see recipe here] quite often.
This recipe is inspired by Florence's Kamquat Butter Cake.  As I don't have kamquat preserve, I use marmalade instead.
Recipe Source - Do What I Like with slight modification
[loaf pan size - 22 cm x 6.5 cm - 24 pieces]
200 gm cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
100 gm butter
80 gm castor sugar [I used 60 gm]
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs
100 ml skimmed milk
80 gm marmalade [I used 3 tbsp]
1 tbsp extra marmalade for topping - optional
  1. Preheat oven at 170 degrees C.  Sieve flour together with baking powder.
  2. Cream butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Using lowest speed, add in 1/3 of flour and 1/3 of the milk.  Beat to combine.  Repeat until flour and milk is finished.  
  5. Lightly stir in the marmalade.
  6. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes or until cake is cooked through.  After 15 minutes baking, remove cake from oven and quickly top the cake centre with extra marmalade.  Bake for a further 30 minutes until golden brown.

Hi Veronica, my hubby says it's much better than my other cakes. I don't know which ones he meant cos' I have baked so many. This must have suit his taste.

Thanks Ann, it's a bold attempt to to change a recipe but I'm happy with the taste, texture and all.
