Vegan Matcha Macarons
When I started learning how to bake vegan macarons, it was like re-learning how to make macarons all over again, since the vegan macarons are also so particular in their own special way.
Learning how to make macarons is a big journey. A very personal one too. Some methods that work for some people, might not work for others. And you just have to find your own groove when it comes down to it. And the way to find your own style, is by practicing, making inevitable mistakes, taking note of what works and what doesn’t, and not giving up!
Sounds like motivational talk, and it really is. It’s pretty simple, if you want something, don’t give up on it, believe in yourself, and put love and joy into the mix, because that will make everything happen way faster.
WHY IS IT MANDATORY TO HAVE AN OVEN THERMOMETER WHEN MAKING MACARONS?
Home ovens are almost always inaccurate. The oven’s internal thermometer is gauging the temperature of where it’s installed, which is on a spot in the back or sides of the oven, where it’s subjected to drafts or hot spots, so it’s not actually telling the temperature of the inside of the oven, where the macarons are baking.
When baking macarons, if you notice the macarons are starting to crack in the oven, or develop huge exploding feet, try lowering the temperature for the next tray.
