My First Madeleines!

Here's a sweet start to the week!

Oh I have been on a craze of French goodies since coming back, I made Madeleine's the other day and they actually turned out pretty good for me, better than the macarons!

A while back I saw that Dajana of Baker's Corner Somewhere in my Kitchen had brought a Madeleine pan and made them. So when I saw a silicon pan in France I just had to get it, it even had a recipe card inside.

Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs
  • 75g sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 90g flour (about a cup)
  • 3g of baking soda, it says yeast but Jamie from Life's a Feast said no it says baking soda in French!
  • grated zest of 1/2 a lemon
  • 90g melted butter, still liquid but cold
  • one spoon of runny honey
  • a few drops of vanilla essence
Method:
  1. melt the butter and keep it to one side
  2. whip the eggs with sugar and salt then slowly add the sifted flour and baking powder, lemon and vanilla essence.
  3. Mix until smooth then add the melted butter and honey and leave to chill for 30 minutes
  4. bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees.

Mix it up!
Put in Fridge and chill for 30 minutes
Fresh out of the oven
Here they are, a tad sticky but a great first attempt

Feel free to help yourself!

Love
