Video recipe - If you want to make Danish pastries and desserts, there is simply no way around marzipan. I have many danes living away from the country asking for a marzipan recipe. Because you can not buy it in most places in the world. I have not been happy with the recipes I could find in the literature or online, so here is the one I have made. It took only 1½ weeks of experimentation and reading up to get it right:-S I also contacted one of the major danish marzipan manufacturers (Odense) that kindly shared some secret.

Video Recipe - A classic Italian cake, available in a wide variety of version. The main ingredients are the creamy mild mascarpone cheese that mostly taste like a heavy cream, and ladyfingers that are a bit similar to macaroons. I used to not bee very excited about it. Mostly because the ones I had tasted too much of coffee. So when I finally tasted one I liked (no actually, loved) the taste of, I made sure to get the recipe. I have never regretted this. Except sometimes when I'm out running:-s A dessert you can easily make the day before serving. It actually becomes better after resting overnight.

I know it from my childhood in the seventies. It was a classic recipe here in Denmark. But it has been somewhat of the radar for the last few decades. That is a shame since it is an excellent dessert. It is easy to make and inexpensive to boot. It is also a very good recipe to combine with other desserts. Especially if they include chocolate. This recipe is very simple, but I include a trick for pimping it up a little. Involving jelly and cake.
