Marzipan orange cakes with orange flower

All the marzipan orange cakes, which I made recently disappeared as dew for sunshine at a tea break at work Marzipan orange cakes. As I still have a marzipan left from Christmas, I decided to make a new portion of these cakes, but this time with a smaller twist to it. In one of the local ethnic fruit and vegetable shops I found a bottle of orange flower extract. So I decided to add some of this extract to the marzipan orange cakes.

Uuhmmm :-)))The orange flower extract gives a very nice twist to wonderful marzipan cakes. Lets see how long the shelf-life will be for this new portion of marzipan orange cakes ??? I have to question if, they will last for one month.

Marzipan orange cakes with orange flower - 40 pieces

  • 500 g marzipan
  • 225 g icing sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • peel from organic orange
  • 2 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange flower extract
  • 40 hazelnuts

  1. Heat the oven to 200'C
  2. Knead all the ingredients together with your hands.
  3. Use teaspoons for placing the marzipan mass on baking paper as small tops. I never use silicone baking paper, when I am baking marzipan, as it quiet tricky to get the marzipan off after baking.
  4. Place a hazelnut kernel in each marzipan top.
  5. Bake in the middle of the oven at 200'C for 10 minutes.


  1. Wow, hvor lyder det lækkert :-)

    Mange hilsner

  2. Hej Birthe !

    De er faktisk rigtige lækre. Flere af mine kollegaere har rost dem, så denne her portion har endnu en gang fået ben af gå på. Der er dog stadig et par stykker tilbage til den kommende weekend.

    Mange hilsner Kirsten
