Marmalade and Ginger Slice Recipe

This would be a typical tea time treat in Scotland often served with a warm drink such as tea or coffee. The recipe which uses marmalade and ginger is a reasonably simple one if you are used to cooking and baking.

Marmalade and Ginger Slice

8oz flour
4oz butter
1 tsp baking powder
8oz golden syrup
8oz orange marmalade (others flavours may do according to taste but traditionally it is smooth orange)
1 beaten egg
1 tsp ground ginger
1 egg

Set oven to 350F. Grease an 8 inch baking tin (square). Melt the syrup and butter in a pan over a gentle heat taking care not to burn the mixture. Stir in the marmalade then leave to cool.

Sift all the dry ingredients into a bowl leaving a "well" in the centre. Into this well, pour the syrup mixture and the beaten egg. Beat the mixture until thoroughly mixed.

Pour into the tin and bake for approx 45 minutes until it is firm and golden in colour. The cake should then be ready to cool on a wire tray and to cut up into slices

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
