Michelle's Freefrom Marmalade Cake

Gluten, lactose, milk, nightshade, nut, peanut, sesame, soya & wheat free

Since this is the season for Seville ‘marmalade’ oranges, we thought that we should have a marmalade cake!


  • 300g / 10 ½ oz dairy-free spread (such as PURE)
  • 150g / 5 ½ oz pale muscovado (raw) sugar
  • 6 tbsp of your favourite marmalade
  • 6 eggs
  • 300g / 10 ½ oz gluten/wheat-free flour or 150g / 5oz each gram flour and rice flour
  • 1 tsp gluten & wheat free baking powder (baking soda)
  • 2 tbsp shelled hemp seeds or sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas mark 5.
  2. Beat the spread with the sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the marmalade and beat again.
  4. Add the eggs, one by one, with a spoonful of flour with each.
  5. Fold in the remains of the flour, the baking powder (baking soda) and seeds if you are using them.
  6. Spoon into a greased and lined 20cm cake tin ( 8" cake pan).
  7. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until it is firm to the touch and a skewer comes out clean.
  8. Turn out onto a rack to cool and if you are a real marmalade freak, spread more marmalade on top.
