Danish Almond Layer Cake

 This layer cake is made of all my favorite things and it tastes like heaven. I made it the other day when visiting my grandmother and thought I would share one of her wonderful recipes.

Nutty Buns

4 eggs
175 g sugar
1 t vanilla sugar
100 g almond flour
60 g flour
100 g butter
1 t baking powder
1 T lemon zest
50 g of chopped almonds
50 g marzipan

Whip eggs and sugar fluffy. Add almond flour, grated marzipan and lemon zest. Melt the butter and add it to the eggs. Add flour and baking powder. Divide between 2 cake forms. bake at 200C for 7-10 min. Or until light golden.

Chocolate cream filling
20 g of chocolate
1 cup of cream

Melt the chocolate and the cream in a pot. Let it cool down completely before you whip it.

Raspberry cream filling
1/2 cup of Raspberries
1 cup of cream

Whip the cream. Mash the raspberries with a fork and add to the whipped cream.

One layer of each filling between the almond buns is my favorite!
