  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons white marzipan
  • 2-3 tablespoons liqueur or fruit juice
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 packets of clear glaze
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cup waters or fruit juice
  • 11- inch nonstick tart pan


To make the cake

  • Heat oven to 325°F. Separate the eggs and beat the egg white together with 1/4 cup sugar.
  • Beat the yolks with 1/4 cup sugar and butter until light.
  • Mix the flour with the baking powder and stir in egg yolk mixture. Fold in egg whites.
  • Coat the tart pan with baking spray or butter. Pour in the cake batter and smooth over (the batter is thick). Bake until slightly golden, about 15 minutes. Do not over bake. The tart will be dry. Remove from oven and cool slightly. Remove tart from pan.

For the topping

  • Wash and pat dry blueberries. Discard stems and defective berries.
  • Mix together the marzipan paste and liqueur. Spread evenly over tart. Arrange berries to cover marzipan.
  • In a saucepan, mix two packets of glaze with 4 tablespoons sugar. Stir in 2 cups cold water or juice.
  • Bring to a boil; let boil over medium heat for 1 minute.
  • Cool for 1 minute, then spoon glaze evenly over fruit.
