mmmm…Macaroons

mmmm…Macaroons

In the spirit of Passover, which you have seen as the topic of some other posts on GMM this week, I thought I’d share my macaroon recipe with you all!

I’m not much of a baker (as you can tell from my previous recipes), but these macaroons are a must! Also, it is really quick and really simple to make them (and they make hardly any mess…no mixers needed!)

I would suggest only making one batch at a time – doubling up on the recipe can lead to different results.

My recipe will give you approx. 12 macaroons.

Ingredients:

  • X 2 eggs (large eggs are best)
  • Flaked almonds
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 125g ground almonds
  • Vanilla Essence
  • Baking parchment

ingredients

Step 1:

  • Pre-heat oven to 175 degrees celsius
  • Separate egg yolk and white – you will need the egg white

Step 2:

  • Put caster sugar and ground almonds into a bowl

Step 3:

  • Add vanilla essence

Step 4:
*You need the mixture to be like a paste…if you add the egg whites too quickly the mixture will be too wet and the macaroons will look flat*

  • To ensure you get this consistency you must add approx. half of the egg white slowly and mix it in
  • As you continue to mix the paste add egg white if needed

*mix with a wooden spoon*

Step 5:

  • Take a teaspoon sized amount of the mixture and roll into a ball
  • If you want to add an almond flake onto the macaroon then you can do this once it has been rolled into shape

*the macaroons should be rolled onto baking parchment to make them easy to lift once cooked

Step 6:

  • Cook in oven for 10mins on 175 degrees celsius

Step 7:

  • Take the macaroons out of the oven and leave them to cool
  • Tip: whilst one batch is cooking you can prepare your next batch to go in after
