Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • Almond Powder (or almond flour) 100g
  • Powdered Sugar 62g
  • Almond Extract 4ml (or kirsche)
  • Egg whites 15g



  1. Sift the almond powder/flour and powdered sugar.
  2. Add in the almond extract and egg whites.
  3. Mix it well.
  4. Combine everything together into a dough.
  5. Wrap it well and store it in an air-tight container.


How to store:

You must wrap it well with cling film and put it in an air-tight container. (or else it’ll DRY OUT) Store in the fridge up to 3 weeks (up to 2 months in the freezer). I know that shelf life is much longer for store-bought marzipan, but this is home-made so best to keep the shelf life short to be on the safe side.
