And so here is the LOOONNNGG awaited blog! very sorry about the delay! (just adds to the suspense :P)
This is the famous recipe I have been using for my macarons!! I guess business will be down since you guys will know how to make it =p Everyone thinks that macarons are hard... I don't think they are THAT difficult (come on.. if I can do it so can YOU!!!) but there are a few tips and tricks that i have discovered along the way that will help you NOT to fail!
I can't say this recipe is FAIL PROOF because.. even mine have failed!!! but it's the best recipe I've tried SO FAR!! so here it is....*drum roll*...
200g pure icing sugar
100g almond meal
3 egg whites
40g caster sugar
pinch of salt
40g cocoa powder
1. Sift icing sugar and almond meal 3 times (the original recipe does not state this but I do it just to be safe and to allow more air into the mixture) into a large bowl.
~the most tedious part but once you sift it the first time the next 2 times are easy ^^~
4. Pipe or spoon the mix onto pre-lined baking trays. Try to keep even sizes so you can match them up later. Tap the tray onto the bench once to release any air bubbles. Leave at room temperature for 30 min - 1 hour (IMPORTANT STEP!!!) till a shell forms - when you touch the macaron shell, it won't be sticky).
The best feeling is when you are crouching down looking into the oven and you see that your macaron has RISEN!! if it hasn't.. don't worry!!!! just try again =D =D
|That's right! TRY AGAIN :D|
|THEY ARE RISING XD|
|FINAL PRODUCT!!! ENJOYYYYYYYY =D|
