Simple Frangipane Spread - As Seen On CTV Morning Live

Although it is starting to feel like spring, none of the tell tale foods of spring are quite available yet SO, sometimes you have to make your own. The nuttiness of almonds, the fresh brightness of orange with a splash of rum will get you through the winter doldrums and satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time.

Simple Frangipane Spread

We sell a version of this that we make at Well Seasoned. It is the perfect accompaniment to our house-made scones, a freshly baked croissant, as a topping for a poached pear or just eaten straight off the spoon!


  • 125 grams almond flour
  • 125 grams unsalted butter, softened
  • 125 grams granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, dark rum or almond extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Zest of 1 orange


  1. Make the frangipane by slowly melting the 125 g butter over low heat and letting it cool slightly. Beat the sugar together with the three eggs and the grated zest of orange until creamy and add the melted butter while continuing to beat. Add the almond flour and mix until smooth.
  2. Store in an airtight container refrigerated for up to 10 days or freezer for up to 60 days.
