    Excellent, very moist, better when completely cool. Made with homemade Meyer lemon marmalade (85 g instead of 75 g) and did not glaze. Cooked for 45 min but next time will cook a bit longer.

    Hands down, one of my favourite cake recipes, ever. I even make marmalade each winter, half for the purpose of using it in this cake. I generally don't bother with the frosting. It's moist and delicious, and just very moreish. Don't neglect the step of lining the pan with baking paper or wax paper, as it's a moist cake and doing so helps to keep it together and tidy.

    This wasn't as marmaladey as I expected it to be. I'd use more next time, maybe 100g instead of 75. It's best to use good bitter marmalade, not the golden shred type. Edit: much better with 100g, a nice marmalade flavour.
