I pinched this recipe from Odense Almond Paste and it came out delicious, so I am sharing it with you. I have been searching for an almond paste coffee cake recipe since I started cooking/baking (many years now). It's very close to an almond ring my mom bought from a neighborhood bakery, when I was very young.
