Macarons

Hey, have you ever been enchanted looking at these delicious little cakes in a French pastry shop? Why don’t try to prepare them by yourself!

First mixture ingredients

  • 300 gr icing sugar
  • 300 gr almond flour
  • 110 gr egg white

Second mixture ingredients

  • 110 gr egg white
  • 250 gr white sugar

Macaron filling

  • 250 gr fresh cream
  • 200 gr dark chocolate
  • 20 gr unsalted butter

Directions

  1. Sieve the icing sugar and ground almonds into a large mixing bowl. Throw any lumps left behind away. Add the egg white and mix until combined.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites and the caster / fine sugar, a little at a time and continue to whisk until the whites are very thick and glossy.
  3. Gently stir the second mixture in the first one. The mixture will lose some air and become quite loose, don’t worry, this is the way it should be.
  4. Using a piping bag, pipe small blobs onto a baking sheet, then leave to dry for 20 minutes – the surface of the macaron will become smooth and shiny.
  5. Bake the macarons at 150° C in the preheated for 7 – 8 minutes open the door to release any steam, close the oven door and cook for a further 7 – 8 minutes. The macarons are cooked when they feel firm and are slightly risen.
