Australia Day Thermomix Lamington Macaron

Published

Lamingtons are an iconic Australian cake, but today I’ve given them a makeover and turned them into a more sophisticated version of themselves. I bring you the Thermomix Lamington macaron!

To celebrate Australia Day this year I have gone back into my archives for inspiration. Ten years ago I featured these bite-sized morsels on another website. When I saw the picture I knew I had to convert the recipe for Thermomix cooking.

Macarons are super easy to make in the Thermomix. When I bought my first TM5 this was the recipe I chose to make. See below for some of my favorite flavours.

Before I share the recipe, I have to admit that I actually don’t like lamingtons very much! I don’t know what it is but I’ve never really been a fan. I think my macaron versions make a nicer dessert, especially if you’re having an Australia Day get together.

What does everyone else think? Are lamingtons a yeah or nay?

Tips for Making Macarons

Below are some watchpoints to consider when you’re making macarons.

  1. Always have the eggs and groundnuts at room temperature.
  2. Make sure your Thermomix bowl and butterfly are perfectly clean and dry. They need to be free from any oily residue. If necessary run them through the dishwasher or do a vinegar wash prior to using the bowl and butterfly.
  3. Allow the macaron shell to dry on the bench prior to cooking.
  4. Macarons need to cook in a cool oven.
