It had been some time now that I had been toying with the idea of using black sesame as the major ingredient in my macaron making. I had read a few bakers exploring using black sesame in their macaron but Kuala Lumpur you can find black sesame used in the chinese dessert and also fusion cakes such as black sesame icecream and black sesame moussecake. Thefore I took an exciting step and ventured into using black sesame seeds and powdered type in my macarons.


This is a powdered black sesame macarons with peanut butter cream filling.


This is a black sesame macarons with chocolat ganache filling.



I caught them stacking on each other, ain’t they look pretty. Macarons are crunchy on the outside, soft and moist inside. Biting into them is just like having a dessert in heaven. Having them along with warm coffee is unspeakable.

I will be having a macaron class on this 19th April only to limited students as I always kept my class small and interesting. Do register now to avoid any disappointment.

    OMG! They look and sound heavenly! Especially when you mention ‘black sesame’ and ‘peanut butter cream’ ^.^ Do you have to buy black sesame in powdered form or can just blitz the sesame in blender?
