Speedy Orange Cake - 1960's (Marguerite Patten Index Card 5)

I have such good memories of this recipe.  It reminds me of that quintessentially English past time of High Tea or even being a young lad at the village Fete etc.

It is also pretty easy, as most of Marguerite Patten's recipes are.  If you don't like Orange, you can use Lemon rind instead.


  1. Hello Chris!

    I just wanted to let you know that we featured this recipe card on our blog post today featuring 1960s recipes and cookbooks! I am glad I found your little slice of the internet, I will be following your blog from here on out! Keep it up!

    1. Hi Jem,

      Thanks for the encouraging comment and thank you for including me in Seven Minutes of Heaven :), it really means a lot when people let me know that they're reading some of the recipes on this blog!

      It is a really easy recipe and I will make sure that I post some more bits and pieces on here in the next few weeks, I have been getting some itchy fingers recently to start posting more things.

      Kind Regards,
