I bought this mold from the states 2 weeks ago when I visited my uncle and aunt, I never try Madeleine's before, so I have searched for this recipes, well the taste almost like kueh cubit from the food vendor. Madeleine's are little cake like cookies that are baked in special molds that give them a delicate shell shape. This small cakes taste so nice because of the honey and the brown butter, I tweaked the recipes a bit , I added raisin and nuts, yummm........
The source of the recipes is from here .
170g unsalted butter
4 large eggs
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 tbsp firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup full flavour honey (chestnut or any wildflower variety)
1.5 cup plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
*extra butter for greasing
Make brown butter by melting butter in a saucepan and cooking it until milk solids fall to the bottom and it turns rich hazelnut brown. Set aside and let it cool until room temperature.
In a large bowl beat eggs, caster sugar, brown sugar and honey until pale and foamy.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt and fold into the batter.
Fold in brown butter.Cover and leave in the fridge for at least 8 hours. (At this point I generally just stick it in the fridge and go to bed)
Preheat oven to 180deg and grease your Madeleine pans with melted butter
Fill in Madeleine pans about 1/2 or 3/4 full. Don't over fill or this will cause the batter to overflow during cooking and your Madeleine's will end up sticking together.
Bake in the oven for about 8 to 10mins until the bumps rise.
Remove from oven and let cool for about 5mins before removing them from the pan and repeating the process with the remaining batter.Here's a chocolate variation of the above.
