    Hi, I am new to this site... stumbled across it in fact, when looking for a recipe for creme mergpijpjes.

    I was wondering if anyone out there can help me, as I desperately want to re-create these wonderful cakes that remind me so much of my recent trip to Amsterdam.

    Thanks,

    Welcome to Zaar! I looked up Creme Mergpijpjes and they are also known as Marzipan Cakes. This is what I found on Zaar

    Marzipan Cake recipe #55251

    Is this what you were looking for?

    Hi Paula,

    Thanks very much, i appreciate the rapid response to my request.

    Its not quite what i was looking for, I "googled" for creme mergpijpjes and found loads of sites that sell the packs of them that we bought in amsterdam...

    They look like the wee marzipan cakes you get in IKEA, except they are heavenly!

    They look like small battenburg cakes with the ends covered in chocolate.
    What is the cake like on the inside? Could you just use butter madiera cake recipe #85 then roll out some marzipan, brush cake lightly with melted, strained apricot or raspberry jam, cover in marzipan like a roll, slice carefully with a sharp, serrated knife and dip the ends in good quality melted plain/dark chocolate...
    The inside of the punschrullar at ikea is much different compared to a cake (and unfortunately keeps getting smaller and cheaper and... I need to perfect that recipe but it's a bit more difficult...)

    I went through all seven of my Dutch cookbooks and didn't find a single recipe for mergpijpjes. Would they also be known by any other name?
