Mandira’s notes: I picked up this recipe from the book only because it had the words “marmalade” and “cake”. I had no idea that it would turn out to be so good. Its really moist with the right amount of flavour. Its not too sweet inspite of the addition of jam. I was a bit worried about it turning out to be the kind of cakes that are so sweet that they make your teeth stick together. But its not. It what I call just right. Plus it has a wonderful texture, somewhat like the banana bread. I’d give this cake 5/5!
