  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Line a 20 x 30cm tin with nonstick baking paper.
  2. Mix the flour, ground almonds and baking powder in a bowl. Put the butter in a separate large bowl and beat with an electric whisk for 2 mins to soften. Add the sugar and continue to whisk for 3 mins.
  3. Add 1 egg with a spoonful of the flour mix and continue to beat on a slow speed. Repeat in batches to use the remaining eggs and spoonfuls of the flour mix. Fold in the chopped nectarine and the marzipan. Pour the mixture into the lined tin and level the top with a palette knife.
  4. Cut the nectarine halves into 1cm slices and arrange in lines along the batter. Sprinkle over the almonds.
  5. Bake for 40 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin then slice into 12 squares. Will keep in an airtight container for 2 days.
