Melomakarona: Recipe for the tastiest Christmas

Melomakarona is a traditional Greek dessert, especially popular during the Christmas holidays. They are known for their full spice and citrus flavor, as well as their syrupy texture.

At Candelinas we have a special weakness for gingerbread, so much so that we created our own gingerbread flavored snap bar !

Today we created a recipe for our favorite Christmas dessert, the melomakarono!

Let's start.

Melomakarona recipe - Ingredients

  • For the dough :
    • 240 gr. olive oil (about 1 cup)
    • 100 gr. sugar (about 1/2 cup)
    • 60 ml orange juice or water (about 1/4 cup)
    • 60 ml brandy or other flavored liquor (about 1/4 cup)
    • 1 teaspoon of soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon clove powder
    • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
    • 520 gr. flour (about 4 cups)
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • For the syrup :
    • 240 ml water (about 1 cup)
    • 200 gr. sugar (about 1 cup)
    • 120 gr. honey (about 1/2 cup)
    • Cinnamon stick
    • Orange peels

Melomakarona Recipe - Instructions

  1. Dough Preparation : Mix the olive oil, sugar, orange juice and cognac in a bowl. Dissolve the soda in the mixture and add the spices. Gradually add the flour with the baking powder until a soft dough is formed.
  2. Forming Melomacaroni : Take small amounts of dough and give them the shape you prefer (usually small ovals).
  3. Baking : Bake the honey macaroons in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 20 minutes or until they are slightly golden.
  4. Preparation of Syrup : Boil the water, sugar, honey, cinnamon stick and orange peel for about 10 minutes.
  5. Syruping : As soon as you take the honey macarons out of the oven, dip them for a few seconds in the hot syrup.
  6. Serving : Serve the honey macaroons with additional honey and walnuts, if desired.

Honey macaroons are a wonderful dessert that combines flavors and aromas reminiscent of the holidays. It's the perfect dessert to accompany your coffee or tea during the winter months!
