Prep: 10 mins | Cook: 1 hour 15 mins
  • 1

    Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 350°F. Spray a 6-cup tempered glass bowl with non-stick cooking spray.

  • 2

    Stir 1 cup cranberries, sultanas, sugar and orange juice in a medium bowl.

  • 3

    Beat cake mix, milk, melted butter, eggs, ginger, cinnamon and orange zest in a large bowl, using an electric mixer on low, until combined. Increase speed to medium. Continue beating until smooth, about 1 to 2 more minutes. Fold in remaining 1 cup cranberries.

  • 4

    Pour cranberry-sultana mixture into bottom of prepared glass bowl. Gently spoon cake batter overtop. Smooth top.

  • 5

    Bake until a skewer inserted into centre of cake comes out clean, about 65 to 75 minutes. Transfer bowl to a rack to cool for 10 to 15 minutes.

  • 6

    If top of cake domed excessively, carefully slice off dome using a serrated knife. Gently run tip of a knife around the edge to loosen the cake. Place a serving platter upside-down on top of bowl. Carefully invert and unmold.

  • 7

    Scoop marmalade into a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high until hot, about 15 to 30 seconds. Brush over sides of hot cake immediately.

  • 8

    Serve cake slices warm, topped with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
