One more for our afternoon tea and this one is my concoction. I made a pot of marmalade last week, ran out of time and there it sits in a bowl in my fridge. Here come the marmalade recipes. The marmalade I made is pectin free with long strands of orange zest. The stands almost all incorporated into the cake. With a thicker jam, you may have to increase the juice or decrease the semolina. The batter I made was on the runny side. I thought the semolina will grow in the oven and sure enough, it did. It turned out to be a stable cake with a great crumb.
