Chocolate Macarons 巧克力马卡龙

相信很多人都被马卡龙折腾过吧?!  
我也曾经失败过好几次,所以好长一段时间都不敢碰再它。
庆幸地今天姐妹们邀约一起玩马卡龙,同时也无私的分享她们对马卡龙的经验与心得。
她们的诚意感动了我, 就这样我抱着重新学习的态度,再次向它挑战。
这次跟前几次相比,确实是有很大的进步了。我会继续努力,希望下次可以更完美!
再次感谢我的好姐妹们!
以上照片是第一批的烘焙,而以下是第二批。
尝试分两批烤,慢慢调整烤箱的温度。
Chocolate Macarons 巧克力马卡龙
(Recipe adapted from : Joceline @Butter, Flour & Me (Chinese Version)
50g Ground almond, sifted
70g Icing sugar, sifted
1/2 tsp Instant coffee powder (I used chocolate powder),sifted
1 Egg white (about 40g)
10g Castor sugar
A pinch of cream tartar
Filling as you like (I use strawberry jam)
Method
  1. Sifted ground almond a few times. Add in sifted chocolate powder and icing sugar, whisk to mix well. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, Beat egg white with cream tartar till frothy, add in sugar gradually (in two batches). Beat until soft peak form (Don't overbeat the egg white till too stiff). (use hand mixer)
  3. Fold egg white meringue into almond mixture (1), mix well.
  4. Place batter into a piping bag with a plain 1cm nozzle. Pipe dollops of batter onto a lined baking tray or silicone macaron mat.
  5. Preheat oven at 180-200C, then off the oven.
  6. Give a knock onto the macaron baking tray.
  7. Place macarons inside the oven for 5-6 mins with oven door ajar
  8. Bake at 100C for 5 mins while the bottom part rises and forms the skirts/feetIncrease the temperature to 120-150C about 5-8 mins or till cooked. (Cover with aluminium foil to prevent the shell from browning).
  9. Remove from tray and let it rest on a rack to cool down before peel them off.
My Note 
(With T Oven)

1.  Preheat oven at 190C : Upper middle rack 
2.  Bake at 120C for 5 mins or till skirt/feet is formed (Upper middle rack : Top        heat only) 上火
3.  Bake at 140C : Bottom rack : Upper and lower heat (上下火)until cooked.
