What is Marzipan?
Featured on the Great British Baking Show, marzipan is an elegant dessert that has its roots in the culinary traditions of the house of Tudor. Originally called “marchpane,” it was a favorite dessert centerpiece at lavish banquets for the royal court. This Tudor-style marzipan had a brittle texture, almost like a cookie. Later on, eggs were added to the recipe, which created a much softer marzipan cake that has become the more popular and well-known variety in modern times. Read More
Made with a combination of simple ingredients, traditional marzipan cake is made with almond flour, natural sweeteners such as sugar or honey, and eggs for moisture and softness. Other popular variations include different types of frosting such as dark chocolate, the signature marzipan from Niederegger Lubeck, a specialty German import. The sponge cake has a soft and delicate texture that melts in your mouth with a sweet, nutty, and buttery bite.
