Secondly, I made macaroons! I used lactose-free milk in preparation for my new vegan diet, without realising the blatantly obvious truth that even lactose-free milk isn't suitable for vegans. Hence why I've never lasted as a vegan for long before now.
I've heard a lot about pre-made macaroon packs where you just add milk and butter and eggs and stuff, but I've never seen the point in using them. However, a couple of days ago I figured I should try them out, and they worked pretty well. If we ignore the fact that they overlapped so much I had to cut them like brownies, pre-made macaroons were a pretty good investment.
((The recipe can be found on the Morrisons cake mix page under macaroons.))
This is what I mean by them overlapping. The mixture wasn't as thick as normal meringue-like macaroons, so I'm completely blaming their appearance on that..
After slicing and dividing the macaroons, I decided that I probably shouldn't be allowed to cook again, due to the lack of aesthetic macaroons.
Despite my fail on creating the actual mix, they actually tasted amazing, despite how incredibly un-vegan-like they were.
The macaroons were of a gorgeous raspberry flavour... so good.
Opinions on my talentless sort-of-baking skills on almost-vegan macaroons?
