I’m always looking for new and interesting flavors to try out when it comes to macarons. Sure, I do enjoy the traditional flavors but I can buy those easily. If one is going to make something at home one should experiment, right?
I had some leftover creamed corn from my previous corn egg drop soup venture and decided to give corn macarons a try. Growing up in Malaysia, I really enjoyed eating corn ice cream and I wanted to emulate that flavor in a macaron.
It really wasn’t that hard and I am absolutely thrilled with the results!
Recipe for sweet corn filling below. Shells can be made according to your favourite macaron recipe and colored orange. I topped mine with a corn flake.
2 egg yolks
50g creamed corn
salt to taste
Over a bain marie, whisk egg yolks, sugar and cream together until mixture becomes thick (custard like consistency).
