Step by step recipe:


1
Put 150 g ground almonds in a bowl, then sieve on top 150 g icing sugar. We use the sieve to remove any lumps.

5
Beat 1 egg white lightly with a fork to make adding a little at a time easier.

Start the food processor, and after 10 seconds add a little egg white.

Continue to add egg white until the mix starts to come together.

Don't mix too long, stop as soon as the mixture starts to gather into a ball.

Remarks:

It's delicious on its own, but can be used for modelling cake decorations, put in the bottom of a tart, or for making a delicious cake called "colombier de la pentecote" (used for preparing "baked Alaska" - recipe coming soon).

Looks like it's easy to make. How long does marzipan paste keep in the refrigerator? Can egg white powder be used as a substitute for raw egg white? Thank you for the beautiful recipe!

1) see "preservation" in top of recipe
2) usually no, because egg white powder is dry (so water should be added to)
