From my story “Sticky”
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¼ cup poppy seeds
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 stick (4 oz) butter or butter substitute
1 jar Orange Marmalade
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Butter and flour a one pound (5” x 9”) cake pan.
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter and 1 cup of the marmalade. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and poppy seeds. Make a well in the middle.
In another bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Add the melted butter and marmalade. Mix with a rubber scraper until just combined. The batter should be slightly lumpy.
Transfer to the prepared cake pan and bake in the pre-heated oven for approximately 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for ten minutes, then turn out of the pan and continue cooling on a rack.
In a saucepan over very low heat warm ½ cup of the marmalade until it has liquefied. Brush or spoon this over the cooling cake.
