This marmalade and fruit loaf is a delicious alternative to traditional fruit cake. I have been making this cake for many years. It's deliciously moist, sweet and full of flavour.

  • 226g/8oz sultanas

Method to Success

Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin.

Put the water, sultanas, butter and Mrs Darlington’s Medium Cut Orange Marmalade in a pan.

Bring to the boil for a few minutes and leave to go cold.

Add the sugar and beaten eggs and stir until well combined.
