  1. I’m puzzled by one thing. The recipe says “makes 375g”, however the weight of the almonds and sugar alone comes to 355g. I find it unlikely that the “large egg” only weighs 20g. There is no liquid to boil away, so these weights don’t add up. Is it just the total that is wrong, or do we have too much of one ingredient?
