Sunshine on a cloudy day, Seville orange and yoghurt cake with marmalade glaze

A bit of sunshine on a cloudy day Its Seville Orange season again and this is a great way to start using up what might remain of last years batch of marmalade before you get the old preserving pan out again ( Sigh!! ). The pandemic caught me well unawares. Anyone for breakfast, can I hope?!! With only four guests gracing the house last year I have an entire shelf of jars sitting forbearingly and waiting to be spread on something soon.I have a favourite Seville orange cake recipe in my repertoire that I make at this time of year while the oranges remain in season. but then this little number popped up and I thought I would give it a whirl to begin clearing the pantry backlog. And just by chance it happens to fit perfectly into the Mediterranean diet scheme of things.Its great for breakfast. Seville orange and yoghurt  cake with marmalade glaze   130g natural yoghurt 55ml mild flavourless olive oil 3 eggs Zest and juice of 1 orange Zest of 1 lemon 200g plain flour 2tsp baking powder 100
