About Marmalade

Marmalade is a fruit preserve that is made from the juices and peels of citrus fruits that are boiled with sugar and water. The most well-known version is made from an orange, but it is also made from lemons, limes, grapefruits, mandarins, sweet oranges, bergamots, and other citrus fruits, as well as combinations.

How to Use Marmalades

Marmalades are great because they have more uses than just a spread. Add a 1/2 cup of marmalade to your biscuit, muffin, or scone recipes. Swirl some marmalade into your morning bowl of oatmeal or yogurt. Drizzle marmalade over cupcakes or cakes. Use it as a marinade or whisk it into a salad dressing. The sky is the limit!

Let me know down below what other uses you have for marmalade.

Marmalade Storage

 



I love trying different bread recipes – and fruity bread seems to be a favorite in our home. I’ve tried many banana bread recipes over the years, but this is by far the easiest, most moist, and the tastiest.

I found this a few years ago while flipping through the many recipes I’ve collected from friends and family over the years and it was an instant hit.

It is sweeter and moister than any other banana bread recipe I’ve used before. Try it – your house will smell amazing all day and I’m sure you’ll love it.

Cake Box Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • 3 fresh bananas – I do not suggest using overly ripe
  • 2 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 stick of butter – I do not use margarine for this recipe

Other Items Needed




Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Melt 1 stick butter over medium heat in saucepan
  • In mixing bowl, combine vanilla and bananas – mash together
  • Then mix in, eggs, cake mix and melted butter
  • Spray baking pans with not stick cooking spray
  • Divide batter between baking pans
  • Bake 45 minutes

I love when I find an old recipe that has an ingredient that I do not immediately recognize. This dessert calls for a package of dessert topping. “What in the world is that?”, I wondered.

A quick Google search led me to Dream Whip Whipped Topping which is a powdered, and easy way of creating a whipped topping.

So, for this recipe, you can find Dream Whip Whipped Topping or purchase a Cool Whip (frozen) topping. Whichever is easier for you to find and use.

Or, you can make yours completely homemade. Either way, this sounds delicious.
