The other day, I found madeleine moulds in the kitchen and thought it would be a good idea to make some. I have never made madeleines prior to this try and found it extremely easy. They were yummy and beautiful. Arthur's girlfriend Clare told me they were the best madeleines she had ever had in her entire life!  Dad also kept on eating them. They were a huge hit! I found the recipe here.
  • 5 eggs
  • 160ml milk
  • 350g sugar
  • 390g flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder (17g)
  • 320g melted cold butter
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 1tsp almond extract
  • 1 vanilla bean
  1. In a mixer, mix the eggs and the sugar together until the mix becomes whiter. 
  2. Add in the sifted flour and baking powder alternating with the milk. Mix well. 
  3. Add in the melted butter, lemon zest, the almond extract and the vanilla bean grains. Mix thoroughly. 
  4. Cover with cling film and let rest in the fridge for 4 to 10 hours. 
  5. Butter and flour your madeleine moulds. 
  6. Preheat oven to 215 degrees C. 
  7. With a piping bag, pipe the butter in the moulds. 
  8. Bake for 11 minutes. 
  9. Enjoy!
* You could include chocolate chips, green tea powder, fruits... etc.
