“Mrs. Janet Keiller made marmalade for the first time in Dundee in 1797 when her husband bought a cargo of oranges that were being sold cheap, after a Spanish ship had been forced into the harbour in a storm. So it is not surprising that marmalade features in a number of Scottish recipes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and rub in the margarine until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Stir in the sugar, half the orange rind and then add the eggs, marmalade, milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Mix well to achieve the consistency of thick batter.
  4. Grease a 6” round cake pan and bake in the centre of a pre-heated oven at 350F for about one hour and twenty minutes until golden brown and an inserted wooden toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Sprinkle the rest of the orange rind on top and allow to cool for a few minutes before you turn out on a wire rack to cool completely.
