Lemon blondie with marzipan and dark chocolate

Lemon blondie
Chewie soft lemony blondie with marzipan.
I had some marzipan that I thought would be nice to use with this cake. Lemon and marzipan goes quite well together, I was not used to this combination, but a vacation to Malta 15 years ago I tasted this combination for the first time, bakeries had a lot of marzipan treats and most of them lemon flavoured. I might have tasted this combination earlier, but do not have as vivid memory as the one from oour vacation to Malta.

You need:

100 g butter
100 g white chocolate
1 can sweet condensed milk
3 eggs
5 tbsp fresh lemon juice
grated peel from 1 lemon
150 g chopped marzipan
100 g dark chocolate

Preheat oven to 150 C

Melt the butter and chocolate on low heat in a sauce pan and add the condensed milk. Set the pan aside and let it cool a bit

Whisk the eggs, add the butter mix and lemon juice and peel stir to a smooth mixture.

Lastly add the flour and stir untill a smooth batter, but do not over mix.
