  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/170°C fan, grease and line loaf tin with parchment paper

  2. In a bowl, beat the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk until light and creamy

  3. Add the vanilla and then beat in the eggs one at a time. You may need to scrape down the sides of the bowl and the beaters

  4. Add the lemon zest then beat in the flour and baking powder

  5. Finally add the milk and mix until the batter is smooth

  6. Pour the batter into loaf tin (fill 2/3 full) and bake for 50-55 minutes or until a cake tester or cocktail stick comes out clean

  7. While hot, glaze the loaf with ​Cottage Delight Gin, Orange and Lemon Marmalade and leave to cool on a wire rack

  8. Once cooled, for extra orange taste, using a small piping nozzle, insert Cottage Delight Gin, Orange and Lemon Marmalade into the bottom of the loaf in 6 places (equally distributed), slice and serve!

Don’t have Gin, Orange & Lemon Marmalade?
