yesterday night my beautiful and sweet friend nina who loves to cook & bake just like me came over for a simple dinner, an extensive chat à deux and some baking. we made some faux chocolate maccarons filled with crème double and berries. delicious. i'm sorry, i'm in a bit of a hurry tonight; i've got to practice a little for tomorrow's (quite big) trends presentation. thank you for reading! a sweet hello & a smile.
faux chocolate maccarons
adapted from donna hay
50 g flour
3 tbsp. chocolate powder
1 tsp. baking powder
1 pinch of salt
4 organic eggs
110 g sugar
50 butter, melted
250 ml crème double
150 g berries (we used raspberries and blueberries)
confectioner's sugar for dusting
preheat the oven to 180 degrees. combine the flour with the chocolate powder and the baking powder. mix the eggs and the sugar for a few minutes until white-fluffy. fold in the flour-chocolate-mix continuously and the melted butter.
shape little pools of dough on the baking sheet (we used a pipe, though the batter was a little too liquid, we admit, so the pipe wasn't really useful, cough. a spoon would do, we're pretty sure). bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. let cool entirely before removing. assemble the maccarons: spread a little double crème on the bottom part, add a few berries, cover with the lid part, dust with a bit of confectioner's sugar. voilà. serve and enjoy.
