What Olivia Cooked: Madeleines

Tuesday, 4 March 2014

Madeleines Recipe My favourite thing about baking is knowing you can make something super tasty, usually easy and affordable- and pretty much have it as 'afters' for lunch for the next couple of days- providing an over-excitable family don't get there first ; ). Madeleines are the perfect example of this kind of treat, they're light, spongy, bite sized, and perfect with a cup of tea. Although you'll need a special Madeleine tray for this (available here) once you have it, you can pretty much make about 24 in one sitting- perfect for packing up and eating on the train, you'll never see so many jealous commuters- plus because of their size, you won't feel too naughty afterwards (and did I mention they're SO easy to do)!

You will need:
- Madeleine tin
- 150g butter
- 3 eggs
- 150g caster sugar
- 150g self raising flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Zest of one lemon
Madeleines Recipe
1. Preheat your oven to 220 degrees and grease and dust (with flour) a madeleine tray to make sure they don't stick!

2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and leave to cool a little. Meanwhile, measure the eggs and sugar and pop into a large bowl and whisk until pale and thick.

3. Sift in half of your flour (with baking powder) into the egg mixture along with the lemon zest and fold in. Pour in half of the melted better around the edge of the mixture and fold in- repeat with the other half of flour and butter until everything is nicely mixed.

4. Individually spoon in the mix to the tin- until it is just below the surface- you don't want it overflowing whilst baking!

5. Bake for about 8-10 minutes until golden and springy- ease out of the tin and cool on a wire rack, repeat until the mixture is used up! Simple!
