Macarons attempt part one

Now I knew that it would take me a few tries to get macarons right in my new oven. But the problem didn’t turn out to be the oven, it turned out to be me.

I could tell as soon as I piped them – I’d undermixed the batter. I’ve only ever made vanilla macarons before, and I guess that the cocoa means that it needed a little more than I’ve done previously :/

Oh well, I was too lazy to do anything about it at that point, so I figured I’d bake them anyway and see how the oven would work.

Now they cracked as expected – but the cracked evenly, and were cooked perfectly inside. So if I can get my technique right, perfect macarons await! ๐Ÿ™‚

But the delicious chocolate chilli ganache made up for the lacklustre macarons ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll give them another shot later this week.
