Anyone know if there is a name for walnut paste?
Marzipan is a paste made from almonds, parzipan is a paste made from apricot or peach kernels, and both can be used on cakes to go under icing. This year we had walnut paste on our Christmas cake but no one knows if there is a proper name for it. I have tried searching the internet but no joy on a name. Walzipan came up blank so... ...anyone know what I should call it?
By the way it is delicious!

Oh well if you must, for 300g of Walnut Paste you need
* 150 g walnut kernels
* 150 g icing sugar
* 1 egg white
put walnuts and icing sugar in food processor, and as soon as walnuts are reduced to a powder, add egg white a spoonful at a time, until paste starts to gather together.
Finish with your hand, gathering all the paste into a ball..... and I hope it tastes better than it looks click here

Yes there are people who actually like marzipan. I also like Marmite so there's probably some doubt about my taste buds.
