Delicious macarons! Your measuring must be precise for success. Remember these are tricky and practice makes perfect!


Ingredients (makes 20 macarons)

  • 39ml water
  • 128.5 g caster sugar
  • 128g almond meal
  • 128g icing sugar
  • 50g egg whites
  • 50g egg whites
  • 30g castor sugar
  • dash white vinegar
  • cup of each desired fillings - Nutella, chocolate ganache etc
  • assortment gel food dyes

Method

  1. Mix 1 - SYRUP. Combine the water and caster sugar and heat to 115 - 125 degrees to reduce moisture and create a sugar syrup.
  2. Mix 2 - PASTE. Combine the almond meal, icing sugar and egg whites in a clean bowl. Using a spatula to remove all lumps and create a smooth paste.
  3. Mix 3 - MERINGUE. In a mixing bowl add all of the egg whites on a high speed once it is slightly foamy, add a dash of white vinegar, then add all of the sugar.
  4. Once the syrup is at the correct temperature, add to the meringue mixture on high speed. Once the heat is reached and the air has dropped out of the mixture, it should look silky and thick. Add meringue mixture into the almond paste bowl. Mix well until everything is combined.
  5. Add the colours you wish and mix until combined. Place immediately in piping bag. Pipe disks and place in oven.
  6. Cook for 7 minutes on 154 degrees and then reduce to 150 degrees and cook for a further two minutes. (IMPORTANT TO BE PRECISE).
  7. Once the shells have cooled, match up pairs and pipe your desired fillings!

  • I love the colourful swirls of the macaroons. Not sure I could do such a great job though.

  • These look beautiful!! A bit too tricky for me though and I don’t think I could be sure oven was on 154.. I think I’ll buy my macaroons and be envious of your skills from afar

  • Ok just read it again, that is confusing it has 50 g egg white twice. Could this be a mistake?


    • No it’s not. One lot of egg whites goes in the almond meal to make a paste, the other lot is used to make the meringue. Very different to my recipe, I can’t wait to try it out.

  • They look lovely but 50 egg whites – whoa!


    • Read the recipe it says 50 grams of egg white, that is maybe 2-3 egg whites.
