180 g icing sugar
4 g salt
100 g eggs
60 g ground almonds
120 g flour (T45)
350 g flour (T45)
  • Prepare an initial mixture with the softened butter, fine salt, icing sugar, powdered almonds, eggs and the 120 g of flour. Be careful not to whip up the mixture.
  • When the mixture is homogeneous, quickly add the remaining 350 g of flour.
  • Leave to rest for at least one night. The base is placed in 8 cm rings.
  • Leave for 1/2 hour in the refrigerator and then bake in the oven at 150 – 160 ºC until the dough turns light brown.

200 g butter

  • Loosen up the room-temperature marzipan by adding the softened butter little by little.
  • Blanch. Finish by adding the pastry cream and then the eggs one by one.
  • Cook at 160 °C in a ventilated oven with the door open.

930 g Chocolate “Almond inspiration”
  • Soak the gelatine in plenty of water.
  • Boil the milk and add the well-drained gelatine. Pour about 1/3 of the hot liquid over the chocolate and mix with a whisk to obtain a smooth, elastic and shiny texture, a signal that the emulsion has started. Add the rest of the milk, maintaining this texture.
