READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Nolita_Food

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.
