I want to bake a cake with the following ingredients:

  • 200 g butter
  • 200 g sugar
  • 200 g grated marzipan
  • 4 eggs
  • 50 g flour

This is a classic recipe were you cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at the time and fold in the flower. However, I'm in doubt when to add the marzipan for best result.

Is it best to mix sugar and marzipan first, then start to cream with this mixture?

Is is it better to cream butter and sugar first, then add marzipan and stir until smooth?

What should I do?


I would cream together the butter and sugar then add marzipan, eggs and flour in that order

  • No need to be 'sorry' Your comment has no place here! I made no statement as to 'best' or 'better'! I only stated how I would do it! Which is what the OP asked! Provide another answer stating how you might do it without seeming to best or better without putting me down!!! GET WITH THE PROGRAM or should I phase that in Bristish, Programme??? – Cynetta Sep 27 '18 at 20:57
