Marmalade Coffee Cake Recipe

Marmalade Coffee Cake Recipe
No holiday brunch would be complete without freshly baked breads, and this easy Orange Marmalade Coffee Cake will add a sweet touch and serve as both a bread and a dessert. It's also attractive, and can be used as a centerpiece. While it's best served warm, it's also good at room temperature. You can make the cake a month or so ahead and freeze it; wrap the cake in foil and heat in a 350° oven 15-20 minutes. Make the glaze and orange zest strips just before serving and decorate at the last minute.
This coffee cake is also great year round, and can be served with afternoon tea, or a morning coffee gathering.

18 Servings

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups sour cream

3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

2 cups orange marmalade

1 orange
2 cups powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a standard 10" tube pan (Angel Food Cake pan) with a removable bottom with non-stick spray.
  2. Place the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and sour cream in a large mixing bowl; mix on medium speed until well-blended.
  3. Measure the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cardamom into a fine strainer set over the butter mixture and shake through.
  4. Blend on low speed just until mixed.
  5. Spread 1/3 of the batter over the bottom of the pan; spread 1 cup of the marmalade over the batter.
  6. Add another layer of batter over the marmalade, then top with the remaining marmalade.
  7. Spread the remaining batter over the marmalade.
  8. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, or until golden brown and set.
  9. Remove from the oven, let sit in the pan 5 minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack.
  10. Use a zester to remove the rind from the orange in strips. Squeeze the juice into a bowl and mix with the powdered sugar until smooth and a glaze consistency.
  11. Drizzle over the coffeecake and sprinkle the orange peel strips over the top.
  12. Serve warm or at room temperature.
