I have been obsessed with The Great British Bake Off and have been binge watching all the seasons on Netflix. I admire those bakers, how they weigh everything and make their own jam for their cakes, and all the different meringues... I think it's way more involved than American baking.
I recently found these cute little cookbooks on the internet and bought them, mostly for the illustrations!
I did convert it to American measurements if you'd like to make it and don't have a scale. But if you go buy a scale, it's pretty fun and it opens up a whole world of baking the British way!
- Made with sifted icing sugar (confectioners or powdered sugar) and sufficient water and strained orange juice to give a good coating consistency.
- Walnut halves to decorate
In a large bowl, cream the butter, orange rind and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg yolks. Sift the flour and baking powder together and fold into the butter mixture. (It will be crumbly and dry.) Add the marmalade, chopped walnuts and the water/orange juice and combine lightly.
