Recipe for homemade marzipan

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: english
Keyword: 5 ingredients or fewer
Author: virtuousbread


  • 400 g Ground almonds ( also called almond flour)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Egg yolk OR 1 egg white depending in if you want it yellow or white
  • 5-10 tbsp Icing sugar (add gradually until it is as sweet as you want it to be)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 150 g Dried apricots (optional - see below)


  • You can mix this by hand.  I frequently add 150 grams of dried apricots which I cut up with scissors and then I put the whole thing in the magimix so that the mixture is not lumpy with apricot bits.
  • You can use this (with or without apricots) in bread or on cake, or you can roll it into balls, roll those balls in cocoa or other chopped nuts or dehydrated fruit "dust", or dip them in melted chocolate for a delicious sweet.
