Quantity of almond paste in Apfelkuchen recipe

Unlike the other possibly-ambiguous quantities in the recipe, for which grams are provided or not (corresponding to whether the measure is weight or volume), the almond paste quantity is only given as "4 oz." Is this meant to be weight or volume?


  • I took it to be weight (see my post on the cake). My cake was burnt on the bottom and sides at 40 minutes.

  • Hi Eli - yes, weight is what we are looking for here. Best, Lynn C.
