Sticky Jaffa loaf

Found this recipe on Women's Weekly. This sticky and sweet jaffa loaf combines citrusy orange with a dense sponge to make one delicious loaf recipe that you’ll want to make time and time again. Warm marmalade and a creamy, yogurt mix makes this loaf different to the rest. This cake only takes 1hr  to rustle up and is well worth the wait.

  • 3 tbsps good-quality thin-cut marmalade
  • 150g tub 0% fat plain yogurt
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 175g golden caster sugar
  • 175g spreadable butter
  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Zest of 1 large orange
For the glaze:
  • Juice of ½ an orange
  • 5 tbsps good-quality thin-cut marmalade
  • 900g loaf tin, buttered and strip-lined
 Set the oven to 160C/140C for fan oven.

 Warm the marmalade, beat in the yogurt and set aside.
Beat the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl until smooth. Quickly beat in the yogurt and spoon the mixture into the tin.

Bake for about 1 hours or until a skewer, when inserted, comes out clean. Check loaf after an hour.

Leave in the tin for 10 mins to cool. Make holes in it with the skewer.
To make the glaze:
Bring the orange juice to the boil in a small pan, then add the marmalade and heat until bubbling and smooth. Spoon it over the cake. Leave to cool in the tin.
