    Serves 10

    Marmalade Loaf Cake:

    175g (6oz) butter
    175g (6oz) soft light-brown sugar
    2 eggs, lightly beaten, at room temperature
    125g (4½oz) dark, coarse-cut marmalade
    finely grated zest of 1 orange
    juice of ½ orange
    175g (6oz) brown self-raising flour

    Butter and base-line a loaf tin measuring 22 x 12 x 6cm (8 x 4¼ x 3in).

    Beat the butter and sugar in a food mixer until light and fluffy. With the machine running add the egg a little at a time, beating well after each addition, then beat in the marmalade, zest and juice. Sift the flour and add the bran from the sieve back into it. Fold into the batter with a metal spoon. Scrape into the tin and smooth the top.

    Bake in an oven preheated to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4 for 35 minutes. A skewer inserted into the middle should come out clean. Leave for 10 minutes, then turn on to a wire rack, peel off the paper and set the right way up. Leave to cool (though it is lovely, if rather crumbly, when still warm).

    Rhubarb Custard Cake:
    4 eggs
    3/4 cup sugar
    120g melted butter
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    3/4 cup plain flour
    2 cups lukewarm milk
    1 1/2 cups rhubarb, cut into 2cm chunks
    icing sugar to dust
    whipped cream or yoghurt to serve
    METHOD
    1. Preheat oven to 190°C. Grease and line a 20 x 20cm cake tin with baking paper.

    2. Separate the eggs into two mixing bowls. Beat the egg yolks and sugar until pale.

    3. Add the melted butter and vanilla extract, beating for 2 minutes, then stir in the flour until combined.

    4. Slowly add the warm milk, beating until all the ingredients are well mixed.

    5. In the other bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

    6. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture a third at a time.

    7. Pour the batter into the cake tin and scatter over the chopped rhubarb. It will sink into the cake as it bakes.

    8. Bake for approximately 1 hour or until the top is lightly golden and doesn’t wobble.

    9. Cool and dust with icing sugar, then serve with whipped cream or yoghurt
