Orange Marmalade Cake


Adapted from Melissa Clark, NYTimes

A dense, rich tea bread with a delightful lighty spiced citrus flavor that comes from our Cardamom knows Zest. This not-overly-sweet cake is studded with pieces of candied Seville orange peel from our marmalade. Perfect for teatime.

  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup Cardamom knows Zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Fold dry ingredients into wet until just combined.
