Step by step recipe

1 Almond dacquoise : Photo of step #1Beat 5 egg whites, incorporating 2 tablespoons caster sugar halfway through, then 150 g icing sugar when they are stiff. 10 min.
2 Almond dacquoise : Photo of step #2Tip 150 g ground almonds into the meringue.

Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F).
2 min.
3 Almond dacquoise : Photo of step #3Fold in the ground almonds gently. 7 min.
4 Almond dacquoise : Photo of step #4Your dacquoise dough is ready.
5 Almond dacquoise : Photo of step #5You can pipe biscuits with a forcing bag like finger biscuits.
6 Almond dacquoise : Photo of step #6Or spread the mixture into one big flat biscuit with a metal spatula.
7 Almond dacquoise : Photo of step #7You can also make pistachio dacquoise by replacing the ground almonds with ground pistachios.
8 Almond dacquoise : Photo of step #8Cook for around 25 minutes without opening the oven door, otherwise the dacquoise is very likely to fall completely flat. 25 min.

Remarks

Another possible flavour: the almonds can be replaced with hazelnuts.

Important: the dacquoise dough is very sticky, so must be cooked on a non-stick baking sheet or a sheet of cooking parchment.

If you lose track of how many egg whites you have in your bowl, remember 1 egg white = 30 g approximately.
