{Lemon Madeleines} - Madlene cu lamaie
Serves:: 30
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 180g white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 55g honey
  • 275g all-purpose flour
  • 15g baking powder
  • 2g salt
  • 225g butter, melted and chilled
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  1. Sift the flour with salt and baking powder.
  2. Combine the eggs and sugar in a bowl and mix for 5 minutes or until double in volume.
  3. Stir in the vanilla then add the honey and mix for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add the flour and mix just until combined.
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour.
  6. Remove from the fridge and stir in the melted butter, gradually, and lemon zest.
  7. In the meantime, brush your madeleine pans with butter (even if you're using silicone pans I recommend greasing them because it yields a better crust)
  8. Spoon the batter in a pastry bag fitted with a round nozzle an pipe it into each cavity of your pans, filling them ¾.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven at 420F and bake for 7-8 minutes or until golden brown. Don't bake more than required as they tend to dry out!
