A great frangipane recipe is something that every baker should have in their back pocket. For the unfamiliar, is a sweet almond-flavored custard used in a variety of ways including in cakes and pastries such as Bakewell Tart, Pear & Almond Tart, fruit tarts, etc. it is used in a lot of European and French desserts. It is delightfully nutty and sweet and really adds an incredible richness to desserts like tarts and pastries. I use it in my Rustic Summer Fruit Galette, and I have a few more recipes coming up that call for frangipane that I can’t wait to share with you! Frangipane is a great building block for bakers, and it is very simple to make. You can make it using a stand mixer, a food processor, or even by hand. What Is Frangipane? Frangipane sounds a lot fancier than it is — it’s actually super easy to make and requires just a few ingredients. Sometimes called frangipane cream, it is essentially an almond filling made of butter, eggs, ground almonds, sugar, and flour. The Difference Between Almond Flour, Almond Meal, And Ground Almonds All three of these things are the same, with just a minor difference. Ground almonds, which you can grind yourself in a food processor or blender and use in this recipe (be sure to use frozen, either toasted or untoasted, almonds if you are doing this!), are simply almonds that have been pulsed to a flour-like texture. Ground almonds are also known as almond flour and almond meal. Really, there’s no difference, but almond flour tends to be more finely ground than almond meal. Also, while most almond flours are blanched, which means their skins have been removed, an almond meal can be blanched or unblanched. Skins on or not, it doesn’t affect the taste of your final product, but using unblanched almond meal may add a little more color to your frangipane. You ever use a word so many times you begin to question if it’s a real word or spelled correctly?

Gemma’s Pro Chef Tips For Making Homemade Frangipane You can use either blanched or unblanched almond flour for this recipe, or almond meal. The taste will be the same! Freeze it! This recipe can be frozen for up to 8 weeks. Vacuum seal it to extend its shelf life in the fridge or freezer. Don’t be shy with the almond extract! I’m a huge fan, and I think being a little liberal with it makes this frangipane taste even better. Use salted butter for that extra bit of flavor! How Do I Store Homemade Frangipane?
