The ugliest macaroons ever

Some of you may be familiar with my previous attempt at making macaroons, if you fancy a laugh then here is the post Macaroon mess. The other day I decided to try again, the result was, if possible, even worse than my previous attempt. Baring in mind that I had put A LOT of pink food coloring in…Here is a picture of the first batch…

Needless to say that these went straight into the bin. Luckily I had enough mixture for another go so into they oven they went and this time I sat and watched them through the oven door, they swelled up beautifully but started going brown on top so I took them out and as soon as I did they collapsed. The oven temperature must have been too high. My flatmate found me in the kitchen scraping the ruined remains off of the baking sheet in an attempt to salvage something. In the end I managed to get them in a bowl and dolloped some double cream on top. Better than nothing.

One day I will succeed! One day…

  1. Brilliant – this post reminds me when I tried to make brioche. Or when my pear pastry exploded. Or when my shortcrust pastry ended up like bricks etc etc etc
