Method –

Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy, add eggs one at a time beating till all are incorporated and batter is light and fluffy, add vanilla essence, orange zest and mix. Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda. Fold in gently with the egg batter, add 1 cup juice and mix. Grease the cake pan and preheat the oven at 180°C. Bake for 45-50 minutes or till the skewer comes out clean. Place the cake on serving tray , heat orange juice, star anise, sugar in a pan, boil it for 2-3 minutes and then add marmalade. Stir and once the marmalade melts remove from heat and pour over the cake. I served it along with Chocolate and Hazelnut ice cream (store brought) and Sauvignon Blanc.
