Clementine & Ginger Cake
What you need …
5 clementines
(sliced thinly and horizontally)
4 oz/100g granulated sugar
  250 ml boiling water
8 oz/225g self raising flour
  3 oz/75g butter
5 oz/150g marmalade
6 oz/175g golden syrup
2 tsps ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsps hot water
1 egg (beaten) 
How to bake …
Dissolve the sugar in the water in a large pan (e.g. skillet or frying pan) until it forms a syrup. Add the sliced clementines and simmer until tender (about 5 minutes).  Allow to cool. Preheat the oven to 170 C (150C Fan), 325F, Mark 3. Grease and line an 8 inch/ 20cms cake tin. Arrange the clementine slices on the bottom of the tin. Melt the butter in the golden syrup in a pan. Mix the flour, ginger and cinnamon. Add the liquid from the pan. Add the marmalade and beaten egg and stir in the hot water. Bake for about 50-55 minutes.
Meryl’s tip : This is a naturally moist cake so use a cake tester to check it’s fully baked. It’s a scrumptious cake to start off 2019 and the ginger gives it an extra kick!
