    Halcyon Eve's Note:

    Another recipe from "To Set Before a Queen", by a former cook for Princess Elizabeth (before she was crowned queen). She says that this was her most popular cake with the royal family, and that she sent it by request to Windsor, Balmoral, and Sandringham, as well as making it for the Queen Mother for her birthday at her request. I made it for my MIL for her birthday one year--it was delicious. The marmalade adds a nice touch to the cake, and the coffee icing is perfect with the rich cake. Times are estimated and don't include time to cool.

      I used a 9 inch spring form pan and I am glad I used this since it is alot deeper then my regular cake pans . I found there was not enough frosting but then I just eyeballed the ingredient amounts LOL I used marmalade in between the layers. I LOVE the frosting. I think next time I will add a bit more marmalade to the batter. Very nice cake. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag
