You can do more with marmalade than simply spread it on toast. We’ve used it to add an extra hit of orange flavour and sweetness to this upside-down cake.

  • 20cm non-stick round cake tin

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C/160°Cfan/gas 4. Grease and line the base of the tin with non-stick baking paper. In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and 250g caster sugar using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract, then add the beaten egg a little at a time until fully incorporated.
  2. Add the ground almonds, flour and zests, then gently mix together.
  3. Sprinkle the 4 tbsp sugar over the base of the prepared tin, then top with the clementine slices, cut-side down, overlapping them to cover any gaps. Dollop over the cake mixture, smooth the top, then bake for 65-70 minutes until a skewer pushed into the centre comes out clean.
  4. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool, clementines face-up. When the cake is nearly cool, warm the marmalade in a pan, then brush over to serve.

  1. If you only have springform or loose-bottomed cake tins, put a baking sheet lined with non-stick baking paper underneath in the oven to catch any marmalade that may seep out.
