Brown Butter Caramelised Banana Macarons
We made 2 flavours macaron shells; intense vanilla and pandan. And 2 flavours for the filling; brown butter caramelised banana and blueberry jam.
We both agreed that the vanilla and brown butter caramelised banana flavour is the most delicious.
For the brown butter caramelised banana filling, you need the followings:
- 1/3 of a block of unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup golden caster sugar
- 3 large bananas (sliced)
- 1tbsp banana essence
- 1 tbsp vanilla essence
First melt the butter and cook it until brown. Add the sugar and cook until the sugar is melted and caramelised. Add sliced bananas and stir rigorously until they are well combined and mashy. Add the banana and vanilla essences. Continue cooking and stirring for another few minutes.
Then remove the paste from the heat and set aside to cool down completely. It is ready to be piped as the macaron filling.
