Roasted Black Sesame Macarons

22 Oct
 

my second try
and it’s still not successful.
i dunno what’s wrong anymore. haha. (:
but i will give it another shot another time!
my shells just not rise like they should!

oh wells. hehe
if u got tips on this please feel free to let me know!
cause I really wanna get it right. hehe

got this recipe from a blog i regularly read (:
Muffins are Ugly Cupcakes
how cute is the name of the blog? hehe

so before tryingit for the second time
i read around to see if people could help me not fail. haha
so I microwaved my egg whites for 10sec in a medium heat microwave to get all the water out.
I also toasted the almond meal and the grounded black sesame in the oven at 140 C° for 10mins (:

besides that.
i followed Felicia all the way.
(Thanks for the recipe btw!)

Recipe :

1 cup confectioners’ sugar
3/4 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup finely ground black sesame
6 tablespoons egg whites (I just used 3 egg whites)
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar

i processed the icing sugar to make sure there were no lumps.

then I added the toasted almond meal and black sesame and processed it as well.

I whipped the egg whites and slowly adding the sugar
until you get soft peaks.
Add the dry ingredients to the egg whites and start folding.
I put my dry ingredients half at a time. Makes things easier.

mine seems too thick now (the first attempt. it was too thin haha)
i should have a flow-like-magma consistency.

Pipe the macaron batter onto baking paper.
Top off with some sesame seeds to make it prettier

Bake at 320F (160C) for 12 mins.
and let it cool (:

cause it was a fail attempt
i didn’t make any buttercream to sandwich it with.
I will hold that till I get the perfect shells. hehe

help anyone?
