Homemade Frangipane Recipe
Prep Time
20 mins
2 hrs

My Homemade Frangipane recipe sure sounds fancy, but it couldn't be easier to make — and is the perfect addition to fruit galettes and is used in a lot of European and French desserts. 

Course: Dessert, Ingredient
Cuisine: French
Servings: 2 cups
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • ¾ cup (6oz/170g) butter
  • ¾ cup (6oz/170g) granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cup (6oz/170g) almond meal (almond flour)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose wheat flour - or - all-purpose GF flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons almond extract
  1. In a heatproof bowl melt the butter either in the microwave or over a ban-Marie.

  2. Stir in the sugar, almond flour, flour, eggs, and almond extract.

  3. Chill for a minimum of 2 hours before using in any of my recipes like my Rustic Summer Fruit Galette. Keep it in the fridge for 7 days or freeze for up to 8 weeks.
