Macarons ( David Lebovits)





Chocolate Macarons
Adapted from The Sweet Life in Paris (Broadway) by David Lebovitz

Chocolate Macaron Batter:

100 gr icing sugar
 50 gr ground almonds
 25 gr unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
  2 large egg whites ( about 36 gr each), at room temperature
 65 gr granulated sugar



Plain Macarons Batter :

125 gr icing sugar
 50 gr ground almonds
   2 large egg whites ( about 36 gr each), at room temperature
 65 gr granulated sugar

Filling :

125 ml Whipping Cream
125 gr bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
 15 gr unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Method :

Preheat oven to 150ยบ C.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and have a pastry bag with a plain tip (about 1/2-inch, 2 cm) ready.

Grind together the powdered sugar with the almond powder and cocoa so there are no lumps; use a blender or food processor since almond meal that you buy isn’t quite fine enough.

In the bowl of a standing electric mixer, beat the egg whites until they begin to rise and hold their shape. While whipping, beat in the granulated sugar until very stiff and firm, about 2 minutes.

Carefully fold the dry ingredients, in two batches, into the beaten egg whites with a flexible rubber spatula. When the mixture is just smooth and there are no streaks of egg white, stop folding and scrape the batter into the pastry bag (standing the bag in a tall glass helps if you’re alone).

Pipe the batter on the parchment-lined baking sheets in 1-inch (3 cm) circles (about 1 tablespoon each of batter), evenly spaced one-inch (3 cm) apart.

Rap the baking sheet a few times firmly on the counter top to flatten the macarons, then bake them for 10-12 minutes. After 3 min, open the door oven  to let the hot air come out.

Let cool completely then remove from baking sheet.

This is a super moist butter cake i've ever made also very soft in texture, thanks Wendy for sharing Mrs NgSK's recipe. I tried this recipe soon after I saw Wendy posted this butter cake in her blog. I added chocolate rice since my kids love chocolate.

230 gr salted butter, softened (cool at 18-20C, not glossy) ---> i use 250 gr

 50 gr + 150 gr sugar
200 gr self raising flour, sifted.

100 gr chocolate rice

Method :

3. Cream butter and 150gm sugar until pale and fluffy (KW speed 3). Put in vanilla paste and and beat for a while. Put in egg yolks one by one and beat well after each addition.
4. Put in half the flour and mix on low speed until incorporated. Put in milk in 2 additions and mix until well incorporated. Mix in balance of flour.
5. Put half the egg whites in and mix on low speed. Pour the balance of egg whites in and FOLD. Add in chocolate rice.
6. Pour batter into pan and level.
7. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. (I reduced to 130C for the last 10 minutes).
