IMG_7088lazy morning.. and decided to mess around in the kitchen with my spare egg white…
ฅ( ͒ᵕ̳◡ᵕ̳ ͒)。o○

Ingredients (makes 10 pairs of macarons)

60g almond meal
70g icing sugar
50g egg white (divided into 33g and 17g)
40g caster sugar
few drops of red food colouring

filling ~ as desired

糖粉 70克
蛋白 50克 (分成33克和17克)
食用色素 (红色) 适量

馅料 ~ 随心意


IMG_7089– beat 33g egg white till frothy and add in caster sugar in few additions. beat till egg white becomes glossy and stiff peak

– add in red food colouring and fold into egg white meringue

– add the above and the balance 17g of egg white into sifted almond meal and icing sugar. fold gently with spatula until well incorporated

– spoon batter into piping bag fitted with a 1cm piping tip and pipe out circles that are 3.5cm in diameter

– tap on the bottom of the baking pan a few times to remove air bubbles and allow macaron shells to sit for 20-30mins till the surface has dried up

– bake in preheated oven of 140 degrees for 10-12 mins

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

    Very cute mao mi ! You products are always so cute…
    any ideas how should I adjust the ingredients if I want to do a less sweet Marcaron.
    My family don\’t really like sweet stuff to be too sweet. So I always reduce the sugars in the recipe.
    But for Marcaron, I know the sugar is essential and I dare not to reduce it so I never try to make Marcaron before.
    If you know, please teach me.
    thanks !

      Hi Kelly, yes, sugar is essential for the structure of the macaron. i think you can play around with the quantity, although i think you can\’t reduce much to make much difference and still have them come out right. also, i believe with lesser sugar, there will be lesser contrast in the texture btw the external crispiness vs the soft interior of the macaron (since the crispy exterior is probably due to sugar becoming candy like?).

      try pairing off with dark chocolate, or maybe adding some espresso powder.. hopefully this makes it easier for your family\’s taste buds
