I volunteered to do a bit of baking for the food stall. So I made hazelnut macaroons-NOT macarons, and raspberry muffins. The macaroons could not be simpler; and only 5 ingredients. I found this recipe in my folder of magazine cuttings; it may be from Delicious or another Aussie food mag.
180g hazelnut meal
200g caster sugar
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract (I used Daintree Vanilla)
100g dark chocolate, melted
Place the first 4 ingredients in a food processor and blitz till a smooth paste. Put tablespoons of the mixture on a greased and lined baking tray, and whack them into a 180C oven for 15 minutes till firm and lightly golden. Cool them on a rack.
When completely cool, drizzle the chocolate over the macaroons and leave till set.
