Recipe

Madeleines

From my secret french recipe book…

3 eggs

120 gr. Self-raising flour

120gr. Sugar

120 gr. Salted butter

1 grated lemon rind/5 tbs lemon juice for the lemon version

or 1 vanilla sugar pack for the vanilla version

 

Preheat oven to 240 degrees.

Sift together flour, sugars adding yolks at the end.

Lightly beat the egg-whites, adding them to the mixture. Pour in melted butter. Add lemon rind and juice (if preparing the lemon version). Whisk until combined.

Spoon the batter into the shell-like mold. Bake 4 minutes, then lower the heat to 180 degrees and let the cakes in the oven for 4 more minutes. Remove from oven and unmold immediately. Eat luke-warm.
