Ingredients list for the almond cream

Almond cream is a basic of pastry and is used in many desserts and cakes. The basic recipe is very simple. The ingredients are the following: Original recipe Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (100 g) of butter
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) of granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup (100 g) of  blanched almonds flour


Depending on the use of the almond cream filling, you can play on the quantities and addition of various ingredients.
If you want to use almond cream in filo pastry to make sweet spring roll desserts,  change the amount of egg and add cornstarch (cornstarch will absorb moisture during cooking and thus prevent steam from making the rolls explode).

  • 1/4 cup (50 g) of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (50 g) of  blanched almonds flour
