Gluten-Free French Orange Marmalade Cake Recipe

Dubbed the “Dessert Queen” in my family, I’m usually the one who makes desserts for birthdays and special events. This recipe I came across this marmalade cake recipe for my grandma’s birthday. The cake itself is moist and light, with the tang of marmalade gives a little pizzaz for the tastebuds. It’s a simple, yet delicious recipe and anything with the word “French” in it  sounds so classy.easy-gluten-free-cake

And anything said with a French accent sounds 105% smarter, but really that’s beyond the point though. It’s a breeze to make, so it’s a lovely choice to make when guests are coming or for the holidays.

It can be served on it’s own with something warm to drink, or topped with creamy vanilla ice cream.


Or if you’re like me, both… ‘scuse me as I adjust my crown. 🙂


French Orange Marmalade Cake
Serves: 8

For the cake:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (I used this Gluten Free Flour)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspon salt
1/2 cup  butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 cup Orange Marmalade
4 tablespoons  confectioners sugar
1/2 tablespoon butter


Preheat the oven to 350˚F (175˚C).  Spray a 8-inch (20-cm) round cake pan (I used a bunt cake pan) with non-stick baking spray.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and the sugar, about 3 minutes.  Add the eggs one at a time scraping down the sides of the bowl after each egg.  Beat in the vanilla.  Add alternately the flour mixture and the milk to the mixer bowl, beginning and ending with the flour.
Pour the batter into the preapared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30-35 minutes.  After 10-15 minutes turn cake onto a wire rack and allow it to cool completely.

Marmalade topping:

Heat marmalade in a small pot over low heat until melted; whisk in confectioners sugar and 1/2 tablespoon butter until smooth.  Pour warm glaze over top of cake allowing some to drizzle down the sides. Cool before slicing.    easy-gluten-free-cake
