Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g ground almonds
500g icing sugar, sifted
1 small egg, beaten
1 tablespoon brandy
1 tablespoon sherry
1/2 teaspoon natural almond extract, (optional)
1 egg white, beaten, for brushing

Method

  1. Mix together the ground almonds and icing sugar in a large bowl, add the combined egg, brandy, sherry and almond extract, if using, then knead until the mixture holds together. Roll out half the almond paste on a work surface dusted with icing sugar and cut to fit the top of the cake. Brush the traditional Christmas cake with egg white, then place the almond paste on top and press lightly with a rolling pin. Roll the remaining almond paste into a strip to fit around the side of the cake.
