Hollywood Marmalade Poundcake
It is about baking weather here in LA and I made a Hollywood Marmalade Poundcake with the NYTIMES recipe by Melissa Clark. Time to take that last train to YUMSVILLE - I'll meet you at the station! ;-)
- 215 grams Laura Ann's Hollywood marmalade (2/3 cup), divided
- 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, plus 1/2 tablespoon for glaze, and more for greasing pan
- 150 grams granulated sugar (3/4 cup)
- 2 teaspoons grated lime zest
- ½ teaspoon grated orange zest
- 3 large eggs, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
- 190 grams all-purpose flour (1 1/2 cups)
- 7 grams baking powder (1 1/2 teaspoons)
- 3 grams fine sea salt (3/4 teaspoon)
- 30 grams confectioners’ sugar (4 tablespoons)
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coarsely chop any extra-large chunks of peel in the marmalade. Grease a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together softened butter, sugar, lime zest and orange zest until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until incorporated. Beat in 1/3 cup marmalade and the orange juice.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Fold dry ingredients into wet until just combined.
- Scrape batter into prepared pan. Bake until surface of cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center emerges clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer pan to a wire rack. Cool 10 minutes; turn cake out of pan and place on rack right-side up. Place a rimmed baking sheet under rack to catch the glaze.
- Heat remaining 1/3 cup marmalade in a small pot over low heat until melted; whisk in confectioners’ sugar and 1/2 tablespoon butter until smooth. Slather warm glaze over top of cake, allowing some to drizzle down the sides. Cool completely before slicing.
