Chocolate filled Madeleines

Oh Madeleines they are my weakness, I adore making this yummy little French cakes. Easy to make and oh so good, this time I added some chocolate to them, Green and Blacks toffee it was divine.

  • 2 eggs
  • 75g sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 90g flour (about a cup)
  • 3g of baking soda
  • 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
  • your favorite chocolate broken up
  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 350 degrees.
What will you add to yours?

  1. These look so gorgeous Rebecca!
    I love the idea of putting the chocolate inside the Madeleine!
    Yum! Madeleines are my weakness too!

  2. I will add some chocolate too except it will be the Chili chocolate from Lindt that I eat every single day!

  3. Rebecca you are killing me with these, they look awesome. The madeleine is tempting, but with the chocolate it is over the top!!

  4. I've had my chocolate ration for the year. I made some with orange flower water and cardamom - They're fun to make, aren't they.

  5. Oh you keep coming at us with chocolate!

    I would like these any way I could get them!

  6. oh how I'll miss chocolate for the next 40 days. hehehe... I guess I'll have to stick to the regular madeleines, which isn't so bad either.

  7. I loooove Madeleines too but I have never made them. I think I definitely have to now:)Madeleines + chocolate = heaven!

  8. These are just divine! A madeline is just perfect on its own but then the addition of chocolate just puts it over the top. Delicious.

  9. Looks like 100 % deliciousness!

  11. Oh wow I love Madleines and I know I will love it even more with chocolate! Looks wonderful.

  12. Even madeleines are my weakness, can finish a packet just like that, this chocolate filled madeleines looks abosolutely divine..

  13. I love madeleines. Yours look very delicious. I tried to make the other day but it was a complete failure. Didn't know what went wrong. I should try again one of these days. Must be my lack of patience...haha.

  14. Mmm these look nice, I am yet to make madeleines. They sound even better with the addition of chocolate.

  15. I would be in Alex's good books for months if I baked these and you make it sound so simple that its well worth it. I wouldnt change a thing in the recipe!

  16. I've seen variations of Madeleines, but never chocolate. How clever of you Rebecca. I'll have to get out my Madeleine pan and give these a try.

  25. I don't think it gets much better than chocolate filled madeleines!
