Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Get out two loaf pans and line the loaf pans with parchment to have flaps hanging over the sides, then generously spray the pans with Nonstick Cooking Spray (to taste).
Step 2
Next, whisk the All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cup), Almond Flour (1/4 cup), Baking Soda (1/2 teaspoon), Baking Powder (1/2 teaspoon), and Salt (1 pinch) together in a bowl to aerate the dry ingredients.
Step 3
Then, set up a stand mixer with a paddle attachment and beat the Butter (1 cup) and Granulated Sugar (1 cup) together in its bowl. Add the Egg (4) one at a time, pushing down the sides as you add them in. Finally, add 1/3 of the dry ingredients followed by the Milk (1/4 cup). Repeat this again, and then end with the final 1/3 of the dry ingredients.
Step 4
Divide the batter evenly into two bowls. Use a scale to be really precise ideally. Stir the Rose Water (1/2 teaspoon) and Pink Gel Food Coloring (1/4 teaspoon) into one of the bowls, and the Lemon (1) zest and juice into the other bowl. Now you have two separate, gorgeously flavored batter.
Step 5
Transfer them each into their own prepared loaf pans, place the loaf pans on a sheet tray to make taking them in and out easier and bake them for about 45 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center of each to make sure it comes out cleanly.
Step 6
Let them cool for 10 minutes, then pull them out by the parchment flaps and place them on a cooling rack to cool completely.
Step 7
Whisk the Almond Flour (2 cup), Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1 cup), and Granulated Sugar (1 cup) together in a large mixing bowl. Add the Egg (1) and Almond Extract (1 teaspoon) and stir it all together until it starts to all bind together in almost a dough. Bring it together with clean hands and knead it for a few minutes to make sure it is smooth and uniform.
Step 8
Form it into a rectangle, cover it in plastic, and refrigerate it until you are ready to assemble the cake.
Step 9
Take the cooled cakes and trim the edges and top so that they are perfect, flat rectangles. Then cut each of them in half lengthwise so that you now have 4 thin little rectangles. Heat the Apricot Jam (1/2 cup) in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute.
Step 10
Brush the long side of one rectangle with the jam and sandwich it with a rectangle of the opposite color. Then brush the top of the sandwich with more jam and place the rectangles of the opposite colors on top of them. Brush the inside edge of the top rectangles so that they stick together. Then brush the rest of the jam all over the outside before you wrap it in marzipan.
Step 11
Roll out the marzipan between two pieces of parchment paper to be a long, thin rectangle. The short side should be long enough for the cake, while the long side should be long enough to wrap it up. Place the cake along the short side of the marzipan near the edge and bring the long side over gently to tightly enclose it. Pinch the edges together and smooth them out and trim away the excess.
Step 12
Use a fork to gently score criss cross marks on the top for some visual interest. Serve with tea! It will also keep for days covered in the refrigerator since the marzipan keeps the cake from drying out. Serve and enjoy!
