About the bake

A cake you can make in your bread machine! There is no fuss with this Ginger and Marmalade Cake recipe, it really is a case of adding all your ingredients together in your breadmaker and letting it do the work for you. You will need a little saucepan to melt your marmalade, butter, sugar and syrup together but apart from that there is minimal washing up to do.
