I’ve had a horrible sweet tooth lately and I desire to make something new. I’d seen a recipe like this for brown sugar cookies and thought why not make it into a cake? The finished project reminds me a lot of cornbread but without the gritty texture. The top and sides have a nice crunch to them and the cake itself is very yellow (and hard to photograph). I decided to top our cake with a bit of orange marmalade but the possibilities are endless, I think it would also be good with macerated berries and whipped cream…hmm, maybe we’ll give that a try tomorrow.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- orange marmalade
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cream butter and add sugar. Separate yolks and whites, first add the yolks to the butter mixture and blend well before adding the whites. Add milk and be mindful of splashing. Add the flour and baking powder until everything is well blended. Spray a baking pan. Spread the batter into the pan, bake for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
While the cake is cooling cover it with half a cup of orange marmalade. You could substitute for another jam, more jam, or icing.
