I got this recipe from Odense website (they produce the almond and marzipan paste). It's super easy, it's very light, very almondy.

An excellent light and flavoursome almond cake. I had some trouble grating the marzipan as it is quite soft. I considered cooling it but instead I threw it into the food processor with the sugar and that did a good job. I was surprised at the amount of flour but it was fine.

I was searching for an easy quick Danish heritage recipe - this one fit the bill. It was easy to make after reading the reviews about using coarse grater for the Marzipan. Shared it with friends who thought it a wonderful cake. My family loved it. will make another!

Very easy to make. I had no trouble grating the marzipan - just used a very coarse grater. The almond taste is not too strong in this cake
