Sticky marmalade squares

Easy baked marmalade squares

 

The other day whilst clearing out one of the shelves in my fridge I discovered that I had no less than five, yes FIVE, jars of marmalade hiding in between the other condiments. Now I know that I have received a few jars over the years but how I lost track and ended up with that many I do not know.

I am betting you have a jar of this wonderful stuff in your pantry, so why not dig it out and try out some of these treats using this versatile spice. Don’t forget to let me know in the comments which cinnamon recipe is your favourite!
