Frangipane is a rich and creamy almond filling that is used in various desserts such as tarts, cakes, and pastries. Frangipane is made with butter, sugar, eggs, ground almonds and sometimes additional flavourings and almond extract. Frangipane is often used as a filling in fruit tarts, such as the classic French dessert, the Galette des Rois. Gallette des Rois is traditionally served during the holiday season in France and we think it’s a real treat for a dessert. You can also use frangipane as a filling for croissants, danish pastries or as a layer in cakes. Its rich and nutty, almond flavour makes it a popular addition to many desserts.
Try using Welsh Blackcurrant Conserve for the filling, it works so well with the almond flavour of the frangipane. Or maybe you’d prefer Welsh Strawberry Conserve to capture a lovely flavour of summer.
