With a maximum of 4 initial ingredients, this deliciousness can not only be made for the festive season but throughout the year.
The ingredients are listed below:
300 grams icing sugar
300 grams caster sugar
100 grams of aground almonds
1 egg yolk
If you combine all the ingredients you get an almond paste, even marzipan.
But being me, I like to be different, I like to be different and add flavour to the marzipan, so grated lemon zest and juice, gives the marzipan a whole different taste and texture.
There is only one drawback, it has to be used in a couple of days otherwise, unlike the commercially bought marzipan that lasts ages, this does go off. Please be warned.
Marzipan – such simple ingredients and yet easy to make and such divine inspiration as well.
It’s not just for Christmas, but can be used all year round.
