Sweet Corn Macarons

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
30g sugar
50g creamed corn
100ml cream
salt to taste

Over a bain marie, whisk egg yolks, sugar and cream together until mixture becomes thick (custard like consistency).

  1. I used to live in Thailand and nearly fell off my chair when I realised that there was corn in my coconut ice-cream. I never would have thought of this though!

  2. I made this recipe but I found the filling soaked into the biscuit too much overnight and ruined the macaron the next day. Did you have this problem?
