Marzipan Cake

In countries where almonds are grown, the harvest begins in late spring and the fresh nuts are much prized. Drying, however, makes this versatile nut available year-round, and the almond-sugar paste known as marzipan extends the range of its uses. Top slices of this moist cake with fresh strawberries and softly whipped cream, or offer it plain with tea or coffee.

wow, we love this cake and it is now my go to recipe when i have guests and when I want to make a baked goody for someone. The first time i made it the can had 2 extra ounces of almond paste and I decided to just go ahead and put the whole can in. It was delicious! The next time I made it I decided to make it according to directions and use the other 2 ounces in a peach cobbler. It was good but my friends and I agree we like it better with the extra 2 ounces of almond paste! Thanks to WS for a great recipe!
Pros: Yield, Quick, Easy, Appearance, Adaptable, Will Make Again

Thanks for the tip
I really appreciate your comment regarding the extra two ounces of marzipan added to the cake. I am making this today and my can of marzipan is also 8 ounces. I probably would not have tried it without your suggestion!! Thanks
