It's been a while, no? I've been a little lazy on the food porn front but these little babies were that good I just had to blog them immediately. Ok, truthfully not that immediately, I made these for Easter and did have every intention of posting them for last week but I've been fighting a nasty ass cold so it had to wait for now. I originally found these suckers over on taste.com.au, supposedly a take on a classic macaroon version from a quaint little cake shop in London named Violet's. I've never had the privilege of tasting them but since these bad boys I baked were pretty awesome, then shucks, Violet's is now high on my gastronomical wanderlust bucketlist.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 INGREDIENTS: 
3 egg whites
150g caster sugar
2 tsp honey
150g desiccated coconut
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt

Preheat oven to 150°C / 302°F and line 2 trays with baking paper.
In a non-stick saucepan place egg whites, honey, coconut, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Combine together over a medium-low heat until sugar has dissolved or mixture has combined.
Cool for about 15 minutes.
With a large spoon place spoon sized mounds of mixture onto tray and flatten slightly.
Bake for around 15-20 minutes until golden or just firm to the touch.
Cool completely then remove from trays.

Et voila.

    1. I think you're thinking of macarons. They're both different and both French. The one above is a concoction of coconut and the more famous macaron is almond based with a ganache like filling! xx

  34. Yum!! They look sooo good. And as it happens, I have some "desiccated" coconut (a term I find funny, since I've never heard it before. My first thoughts were that it sounded like decapitated or something else equally as sinister lol.) lying around. Thanks for the recipe :)

I'd been stuffing myself like crazy ever since Easter and a couple of days ago I've decided to put an end to all the sweet stuff and now you come and mess up my healthy streak. Thanks!:P I can't just look at these pics and read through the ingredients without having a bite of something extra sweet and delicious!
