A rich cake packed with orange flavor! I like to use my Cara Cara Orange Marmalade that I packed this past winter. Marmalade recipe can be found on http://www.georgegeary.com/ or you can use store bought.

Add flour mixture into egg mixture and blend well. Spread batter in prepared pan.
Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake, comes out with only a few crumbs clinging to it, about 55 to 65 minutes. Cool pan on a rack 10 minutes, then invert cake onto rack and let cool completely.
For icing: Whisk together powdered sugar, marmalade and orange juice in a small bowl. Drizzle over cooled cake. Let glaze set for 30 minutes.
