Description

In ltaly where almonds are grown, the almond-sugar paste confection known as marzipan extends the nuts' enjoyment year-round. As the star in this moist cake, it's creamed and incorprated into the batter, infusing it with nutty sweetness. Once it's baked in a cake or loaf pan and left to cool, a glazing of chocolate fondant sets its flavor profile over the edge.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams butter (melted)
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 200 grams marzipan (roughly chopped)
  • 4 eggs
  • 250 grams flour
  • 75 grams corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 50 milliliters milk (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • 200 grams icing (chocolate fondant)

  2. 2Beat the melted butter with the sugar and vanilla until creamy.
  3. 3Add the marzipan and the eggs, one at a time, and mix well.
  4. 4Mix together the flour, cornstarch, and baking powder, and add to the mixture and mix well.
  5. 5Add the almond essence and milk, and mix until smooth. Mixture should resemble ribbons when falling from the spoon.
