Marzipan croissants

Marzipan croissants

I have the recipe on the packaging of the Dr. Oetker marzipan package. I would gladly offer it to you but I don't have any more. The children came and laughed at everything!

  • 200 g of marzipan
  • 70 g sugar
  • an albumen
  • Almond flakes
  • a box of commercial chocolate icing-150 g

Servings: 18

Preparation time: less than 30 minutes


I mixed the egg white, marzipan and sugar until a homogeneous paste was obtained.

I took small quantities with a spoon and rolled sticks of about 5 cm in my hand, which I bent in the shape of donuts. I put them in a tray lined with baking paper, sprinkled them with almond flakes and baked them at 180 degrees in the oven for 15 minutes. I even fried them a little hard ....

I let them cool and then, after melting the chocolate icing, I dipped a corner of the croissant in the icing and put them to dry on a metal support.

It is an extremely simple recipe and the result is beyond expectations.

In the tray lined with baking paper, bake the hearts over medium heat, in the preheated oven, for 8-10 minutes. Take them out one by one on a plate and, while they are hot, grease them with a thin layer of apricot jam.

Marzipan croissants

I got the recipe from the packaging of Dr. Oetker's marzipan package.
It was Sunday cake, the children came to the table!
I had a crazy success, in 5 minutes there was none left!

200 g marzipan
70 g sugar
an egg white
Almond flakes
a box of chocolate icing, 50 g

I mixed the egg whites, marzipan and sugar until a homogeneous paste was obtained.
I took small amounts with a spoon and rolled sticks of about 5 cm in my hand, which I bent in the shape of croissants.
I put them in the tray lined with the appropriate paper, sprinkled them with almond flakes and baked them in the oven for 15 minutes at 180 degrees.
I fried them a little hard.
I let them cool, and after melting the chocolate icing, I dipped a corner of each croissant into it. Finally, I put the croissants to dry on a metal support.

Sugar paste vs fondant vs marzipan. What's the difference

Whether you want to prepare delicious cakes at home, or you want to be informed the next time you go to a confectionery, Alina Barbu from Chocolate and Vanilla explains the differences between sugar paste, fondant and marzipan.

Sugar paste or fondant?
International speaking & hellip are the same. I mean, in the US it's called fondant paste (fondant paste or roll fondant or ready to roll icing) and in the UK it is known as sugar paste (sugar paste). They are essentially the same: a dense paste, made of powdered sugar, gelatin, liquid glucose / honey (if you make it at home) and water. A sufficiently elastic paste, easy to stretch, immaculate or colored, good for dressing cakes, and for shaping figurines, flowers or other decorations. And & hell for diversification there is also Gumpaste - a paste that can be stretched very thin, which hardens quickly and is perfect if you want to make it flower decorations.

flux as a Romanian name, it refers either to the strong one of candy (exactly the one from the communist fondants), or the one of pastry, with which the almonds are glazed. Whatever it is, it's completely different from sugar paste. The fondant has sugar, but in principle it lacks gelatin.

More important than that. the process by which they are produced is different:

  • Sugar paste is used to use powdered sugar in which melted gelatin is mixed in a bain marie, mixed with a little honey / liquid glucose.
  • At the fondant, sugar is boiled with water and liquid glucose, and the resulting mixture needs to be crushed (ie repeated spreading with a spatula or grip on a cold surface until it turns white).

Sugar paste vs marzipan
I never understood why these were confused. There is no trace of almonds in the sugar paste and marzipan could never be confused with a cake. At most you can confuse marzipan with almond paste because they have the same components (but a different consistency).

The marzipan (it is more often called so in Europe) it is made from melted sugar with liquid glucose in which almond flour is added. It is dense and very little sticky and is also used to dress cakes (in addition to filling candies), and the texture and taste that the almonds give it make it unmistakable. Instead, almond paste (so called in the US) has less almond flour in the composition, is softer and is normally used in cakes and not on top of them.

My favorite & hellipRoyal Icing
Although it is the most difficult to handle and the most delicate of all, royal icing is by far the one that would suit me. It is a mixture of egg whites and powdered sugar that hardens as it dries. From it you can make the most complicated lacework. You need, however, a sure hand and some artistic talent so that you can walk non-stop a small pos from which to take drop by drop royal icing over the cake. (The nice part is that if you don't have artistic talent, but you think you could manage to draw some indefinite lines and abstract drawings you can put royal icing on cookies)

Marzipan, fondant or sugar paste?

A Marzipan Cake, please! But & # 8230 is that really marzipan ?!

Marzipan is a natural product made from sugar and ground almonds. It is a natural, delicious paste, used in the preparation of sweets and fillings or decorations for cakes, cookies and confectionery. It is also available in thin sheets. They are used by professional confectioners to glaze and decorate wedding cakes, for anniversaries or other more special cakes.

Authentic marzipan is made with peeled almonds. We differentiate between sugar paste and marzipan with almonds.

What is the difference between marzipan, fondant and sugar paste?

Marzipan is traditionally used in many cakes, sweets, desserts and cookies, but especially in decorations. We must not confuse marzipan with fondant. The latter is made of water, sugar and liquid glucose, is very cheap and is used for glazing (dressing) cakes, muffins and creams in our confectioneries. It often contains a lot of E's and, of course, food coloring.

You have probably noticed that most confectionery laboratories in Romania offer desserts and cakes with a so-called marzipan decoration. Did you know that what I call marzipan is actually a simple paste of sugar, starch and other ingredients that do not include almonds at all? The ingredients of this sugar paste falsely called marzipan are: sugar, corn starch, glucose syrup, vegetable oil, skimmed milk powder. E-s, loosens and emulsifiers also abound in fondant or sugar paste.

If the packaged products have listed, according to the legislation, the ingredients on the label, in the case of cakes and cakes from confectioneries we rarely know what we consume. Have you ever received the list of ingredients with the cake?

The history of authentic marzipan

The art of combining ground almonds with sugar and forming a paste dates back over 1000 years and has its origins in the Orient. It is believed to have been brought to Europe by the Arabs through Spain. There it grew in popularity as a dessert, but only for royalty and nobility due to the extremely high price of sugar. The price of sugar did not fall until the 19th century, when marzipan became a dessert that more and more people could afford.
In the 18th century, marzipan was often used for medicinal purposes. It was used both as a method of sweetening bitter pills and as a medicine for certain diseases. It was known as "bread of energy," "sugar of the heart," and "marzipan of the sick."

Marzipan was mostly produced in North Germany, but then began to be manufactured in the United States, Austria, Italy (Marzapane), Spain (Mazapan), Denmark (Marcipan), Portugal (Maçapão), Latin America (Mazapán). ), The Middle East (Lozina) and many other countries. However, Germany has a longer tradition in the production of marzipan, especially in the state of Schleswig-Holstein.

Marzipan is a thick almond paste. The consistency of marzipan is similar to that of modeling clay or soft rubber, which makes it an ideal product for modeling, rolling and composing various shapes. Also, the marzipan can be rolled and turned into a thin sheet that can be a uniform layer, useful for icing cakes. It is unlikely that the so-called marzipan cakes in our confectioneries will even contain marzipan. The so-called is actually fondant or sugar paste. But who can check? The cakes do not have a verified ingredient sheet. We can only trust the sellers & # 8230 If we really want to eat marzipan we can buy it as such and prepare dessert or decor at home.

To make the marzipan form a thick paste, a little liquid is needed as a binder. For this, several recipes use a combination of egg whites, water and honey.
