How to Use Marmalade: Yogurt Cake with Lemon Marmalade Glaze

Yogurt Cake with Lemon Marmalade Glaze

We frequently have farmers’ market customers ask us what to do with marmalade, beyond spreading it on toast and eating it with a spoon. Here’s an application we love, that’s a little off the beaten path but still pretty easy: use your favorite marmalade to glaze a simple cake!

The cake recipe here is simple enough — its light, sweet flavor is the perfect base for any Blue Chair Fruit marmalade. We glazed this cake with our Lemon Marmalade with Lavender and Cardamom, and we think the subtle lavender notes, along with the slightly tart bitter lemon taste, really make this simple cake sing. You can strain out the citrus rinds (they make a lovely snack while you wait for the glaze to set), but we love the extra surprise kick they give.

Of course, the sky’s the limit here. What about playing up the sophistication by using¬†Bergamot Marmalade — and then serving with Earl Grey tea? Or, if you’re feeling sweeter, glaze with¬†Strawberry-Meyer Lemon Marmalade.

It may be time to sneak back in the kitchen for another slice…
