Marzipan Cupcake with Lemonglaze

  • 200 g marzipan
  • 75 g flour
  • 125 g butter (or half canola-oil)
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 4 eggs
  • 75 g dark brown sugar (or brown or white)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or a half vanilla bean)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 1/2-1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven at 180°C.
  2. Mix dark brown sugar and butter (or oil-butter mixture) until creamy.
  3. Add eggs and mix until very fluffy.
  4. Cube Marzipan and soften in microwave (about 20-30 sec. at 700 Watt). You don't need to do this, but the handling is way easier.
  5. Incorporate marzipan, cinnamon, pinch of salt and vanilla extract into egg-butter-sugar mixture.
  6. Add ground almonds.
  7. Mix baking powder with flour and add to dough. Mix thoroughly.
  8. Butter a cake pan or cupcake tin and transfer dough to it.
  9. Bake at 180°C for about 45 minutes (cake) or 20 minutes (cupcakes).
  10. Let cupcakes cool for 10 minutes.
  11. Mix lemon juice and icing sugar until a thick paste forms. Glaze cooled cupcakes as you like.
