Hello foodie friends!
Last week was a special day! It was the Epiphany. It was special not by the celebration but mostly because it’s the day where you have the right (and duty) to eat a Kings Cake. It’s something that we do in my family each year and since I’m living really alone abroad and have my own flat like a real adult, I decided to bake a Kings Cake on my own for the first time. Then, since I love coconut and that the oven was already hot, I just baked coconut macaroons too (#guilty). Let me share with you my recipes!
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
– 2 rolls of puff pastry
– 280 gr. of almond powder
– 140 gr. of sugar
– 2 eggs
– 100 gr. of melted butter
– 1 egg yolk (to decorate but I forgot)
– 1 charm (we didn’t had any so we put a cleaned beer cap #oups)
Take your pie plate and put butter on it so it won’t be sticky after. Place one puff pastry on the bottom and prick the dough with a fork.
In a bowl, mix together the almond powder, the sugar, the 2 eggs and the soft butter.
Place this doe into the pie plate and hide the charm.
Cover the pie plate with the second puff pastry and seal the edges as best as you can.
If you feel artistic, you can draw a pattern on the puff pastry and brush with the egg yolk to have a shiny result.
Put in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes at 200°C. Check regularly the cooking to make sure that you pie won’t burn!
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: +- 10 min minutes
– 150 g of grated coconut
– 100 g of sugar
– 1 egg
– 2 egg white
Preheat the oven at 200°C (or cook a kings pie hehe). In a bowl, mix together the coconut, sugar and the egg. On the side, whisk the egg whites and then incorporate slowly the whisked egg white in the coconut preparation. It will make it super fluffy. If you are lazy (like me), just add the full eggs and it will be heavier like a cookie.
On a sheet of oven-proof paper, create little balls of coconut preparation and put in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes. You should take out the coconut macaroons once they start to become with a golden color.
Let it cool before trying… If you can!
