Macarons with Chocolate Ganache & Lemon Buttercream

Today I am making some Macarons again, this time is to give some to a friend and also for my nephews too. They have been pestering me to bake this little hamburgers for them but I always put on hold as I don't like them to eat so much sweet stuffs especially Macarons which are very sweet.

Macaron Recipe

4 large egg whites
70g Caster Sugar
230g Icing Sugar
120g Almond Ground
Food Coloring (optional)

- Preheat oven to 150 degrees.
- Beat Egg white and caster sugar till stiff.
- Sift the Almond Ground and Icing Sugar.
- Fold into the egg white mixture.
- Mixture should be smooth and not runny.
- Do not over mix or else macarons will have no feet.
- Pipe onto trays lined with baking paper.
- Give the tray a rap and bake for 20 minutes.

Chocolate Ganache Filling

150g Chocolate Converture 70%
150g Dairy Cream
30g Unsalted Butter

Boil the cream and stir into the chocolate till melted and smooth texture.
Blend in the soft butter and keep at room temp.
Keep in fridge.

Lemon Buttercream

1/2 cup salted butter
2 cups of icing sugar
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp cream

Whip the butter, add in icing sugar one cup at a time, beating continuously.
Add lemon zest & lemon juice.
Lastly add in cream to thin it out.
