I am partial to marzipan and this cake full of almond paste, ground almonds and almond extract satisfies my cravings.

Wow! What a fantastic taste treat. I used a food processor to mix the almond paste, butter and sugar. (I also added some marzipan) I didn't dilute the apricot preserves with water, just brushed it on the warm cake. My mother already has an order in for another one! Thank you for a wonderful recipe.
