Macarons !!

I couldn't believe I finally managed to make this, super sweet macarons !! Actuall this time was my 2nd time making macarons (Don't mention the 1st time, failed one) and the final result was so good. This is because I adapted to a good recipe from 温馨小屋.

Recipe adapted from 温馨小屋 , Thank you very much to Felvinc for your kind sharing !!

Chocolate macarons
A)
Almond flour 25g
Cocoa powder 5g
Icing sugar 38g

B)
Egg white 23g
Icing sugar 23g

1. If you have a food processor, mix in almond four, cocoa powder and icing sugar, and give few "Pulse" to mix it well. Then sift the mixture.
2. If you don't have a food processor, just sift the flour mixture.
3. Beat egg white to a foam , then gradually add in sugar until you get a glossy meringue(like cream).
4. Fold in flour mixture and combine well.
5. Fill in the batter in a piping bag and pipe small rounds on a parchment paper.
6. Set aside to rest for 15mins.

How to bake :-

I have a microwave cum conventional oven, thus I followed to Felvinc's method :-

1. Place macarons on a wooden board, bake at pre-heat oven at 130c for 3mins, this process is to harden the shell only.
2. Remove wooden board, transfer macarons to another baking pan, bake at pre-heat oven at 130c for 12-15mins.
3. Spray some water on the paper, to easily remove the macarons (do it when macarons still warm)
4. Store in air tight container to prevent macarons turned soggy.

If you have other type of oven, maybe you can follow another Felvinc's way, see here or you adjust according to your type of oven...

Dear all, Thanks for stopping by and leave your lovely comment. I suggest you to give a try, it look difficult but in actual fact, it is not !! The important thing is you need to know your Oven !! adjust the right temp, and am sure you can make this too..

Bakeling, can make about 25pcs (50cent coin size). When I did, I double up the ingredients.

Ah Wei, this is super sweet, I'm not appreciate this but my kids love it !!

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Felvinc, sure, no problem to belanja you at Baby seafood restaurant since the price there is cheap, hahaha..

Blessed Homemaker said...

I've been procrastinating making these for a few reasons. 1. super sweet 2. lots of failure. Wish I could find some courage real soon to try this. Your macs look great!

Pete said...

Looks great and not many ingredients used. But I guess it is not that easy to make. May take some time to master it.

Colin Woon said...

You made IT!!! I love macarons! So cool that you and Felvin have mastered the technique. Only if I could get my wife to try.

Love the photos! Last photo is my favorite!
