Orange Marmalade Cake

One fine day, i decided to bake a lovely orange marmalade cake which i found in sanjeev kapoor's cookbook. I ran into the store and bought a jar of orange marmalade and came home happily to bake this goodness. I made the batter patiently, took step by step picture of it..Poured the batter into the cake tin and blessed the tin and put that into the oven. Then i waited for a hard 45 mins, when i opened the oven door to check the cake, I smelled the best aroma of my life, the cake was beautifully baked and everything was coming together so well...

Then this horrible this happened to me. When i was about to the take the cake out of the oven, I dropped the entire cake on the floor, since the cake was hot and so soft the whole cake fell on to the floor and got broken into pieces(lucky my dog).

I was so worried and totally got out of mood. The whole day i was blabbering about this to everyone i see and posted that in my facebook wall, i got so many kind messages for that..But luckily(?) i got some left over batter because my cake pan was smaller than a 9 inch pan and i baked that in a small square cake pan. I got to taste that, i should tell you, it was the softest most flavourful cake i ever baked and tasted. I took a pic of that and wanted to post that here.

So in my step by step pictures, if you ever see a round cake turned into a square cake, don't get surprised.

Bake this and let me know how it turned out for you. If you can send me a pic..

  1. I'm a big fan of Sanjeev kapoor, luv his recipes.
    The cake looks awesome dear, drooling here.

  2. oh its horrible to drop a cake and notget to taste it after waiting for those long 45 mins.but the cake looks amazing!i just baked a cake and the top is risen too much and cracked...what could be the reason adding both baking soda and powder??

  3. WOW, Lovely
    Plz visit my blog this time, I need a little help :p


  4. @Princy VinothI think you must have over filled the cake tin. May be the batter must be too thick..

  5. I trust sanjeev kapoor recipes..this one too has come out well

  6. Aartiamma, This, Orange Marmalade Cake is an excellent recipe and I have only to buy the Marmalade to
    try it. The appeal of many of your recipes apart, your innovation of supplimenting the recipe text with
    sequential pictures is really superb. It is more eloquent in explaining the procedure of preparation, than the artificial eloquence and tediousness in many normally presented videos. One request, don't try to push up too many commonplace south indian items, for the sake of it. For example, an everyday Rava Dosa fried in ghee, is worthier than the cumbersome, tasteless Poricha Kuttu. Regards.

  7. It will be a treat to my stomach just like ur site says yummy to tummy.

  8. love love love the recipe.Will definitely make it asap.Thanks dear all your recipes are great.U r my favorite blogger.Imrose

  14. @AnonymousSorry i dont think eggless is possible here. Will share eggless version soon.

  15. @AnonymousOrange marmalade can be found in jam section in supermarkets. You can use any jam.

  16. Hi, Can I use chocolate chips instead of tutti fruity?

  17. The sugar measurement, is it before powdering or after? also, if we don't add tutti fruity, any problem?

  18. @Annit is after powdering and u can skip tutti fruity

  19. hie akka, i ve 1 doubt..instead of beating the egg whites separately,can we add d whole egg along wid d whites after creaming d butter and sugar??thanks:)

  20. @umamahino this way the cake will be much lighter

  21. can i beat the egg whites and yolks with my hand wire whisker akka??

  22. @umamahiit will take so much time. you can beat it with your wire whisk

  23. can i halve this recipe?and in the halved recipe,i cannot half the 3eggs into 1 1/2 eggs,so shall i use 2eggs for 1 1/4cup of flour by leaving the yogurt?will t work??thanks:)

  24. @umamahidont skip the yogurt. just crack the second egg in a bowl, whisk it and add just half of it.
