I love almonds, so it stands to reason that I also love marzipan. So, I made cake with it!



The recipe for the cake is here http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/04/almond-cake-with-strawberry-rhubarb-compote/.

Plain cake!


But I sort of winged my own fruit compote, so here is what I did:

Cut up 3-4 strawberries (frozen works too)

Combine in a saucepan with 1/3 cup of blueberries (I used frozen) and 1/3 cup of peaches (frozen).

Heat over medium, stirring, and add a dash of ginger, a tablespoon of sugar, and a tablespoon of honey. Heat for 10-15 minutes until the mixture is thickened slightly, then mash until smooth (ish)

Pour over cake and enjoy!
