Orange Marmalade Cake With Mixed Berries (A Sugar-Free Recipe)

Citrus and summer fruit are an ideal combination. Mixed berries – strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries – are tasty all on their own. When berries are paired with this Orange Marmalade cake you have a celebration of summer.

The recipe is based on a Victorian jam cake recipe and tea rooms still serve it. I lightened the recipe by using butter-flavored Crisco, sugar-free marmalade, Splenda, and light cream cheese. You may serve the cake plain with a dusting of confectioner’s sugar, but it tastes best when topped with whipped cream (or sugar-free topping) and berries.

If you really want to get fancy double the recipe and make a layer cake. Frost the center layer with whipped cream (or sugar-free topping) and add a layer of mixed berries or sliced strawberries. Place the top layer on the cake and repeat this process. Chill the cake a few hours before slicing. Orange Marmalade Cake takes only minutes to make and freezes well.


1/2 cup butter-flavored Crisco
2/3 cup Splenda
2 large eggs (room temperature)
2/3 cup sugar-free marmalade (or light marmalade)
2 tablespoons light cream cheese
1 1/4 teaspoons orange extract
1/2 cup regular flour (the presifted kind)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (may be omitted)
1/2 cup flour-coated currants (may be omitted)

Place butter-flavored Crisco, Splenda, eggs, and cream cheese in small mixer bowl. Cream ingredients at medium speed until fluffy. Add orange extract. In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Fold currants into batter.

Coat a 9-inch round layer cake pan with baking spray. Pour batter into the pan and spread it out evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes, or until the cake pulls away from the side of the pan. Makes 8 servings.
