Recipe: Mrs Darlington's Marmalade Fruit Loaf

Here at Country Bumpkin Chic we like to support local events, & at the beginning of July popped along to the Charminster Pre-School Fun Day. It was a colourful array of stalls selling everything from your standard bric & brac, through to some unique products from Loving by Nature Dorset selling baby clothes, children’s clothing stall Flamingo & Fairy, Pop Fizz Clink Prosecco Bar through to my local village Post Office selling Mrs Darlington’s jams, curds, pickles & chutneys.

I picked up a jar of Mrs Darlinton’s Lemon & Lime Curd, as well as the Medium Cut Orange Marmalade for £5 – a right billy bargain! I also picked up a few free recipe cards to give a whirl.

Mrs Darlington or Marion who’s based in Cheshire is the Mary Berry of recipe creation & it’s a real family affair with founder Marion, and daughters Sarah & Wendy both working for the business. The website is so kitsch & country & with their strap line ‘Made with Love’ at the heart of the brand, oozes authenticity.

I decided to give the Marmalade & Fruit Loaf recipe a go, it seemed pretty straightforward & didn’t need any exotic ingredients which is one of my pet hates.

Below are a few snap shots from my baking session & a shot of the recipe card, which you can view online.

The result was a yummy loaf, which I enjoyed with a lovely cup of Earl Grey. I might try another slice warmed up with some ice cream or custard.
