Crosby's Orange Marmalade Gingerbread

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kats Mom

From Crosby's web site. They recommend using Fancy Molasses. I like finding manufacturer's recipes. They have a vested interest in giving you a recipe that is delicious so that you will buy their products. The marmalade should complement the spices nicely. Prep time is a guess-timate.

This is a good moist cake, and simple to make. Spicy and tangy, but not sweet. I used self raising flour, without extra raising ingredients and as I'm in the UK, it was treacle instead of molasses. My spice measurements were generous and I didn't have as much marmalade as the recipe called for, but it seemed fine. If I was making it again (which is possibly) I'd maybe add some chunks of preserved ginger.
