since i googled for a couple of madeleine recipes, now's the best time to try the madeleine pan i got from daiso!
Cusine Paradise, which i thought was relatively simple as i have the required ingredients at home...
but though i followed the recipe and instructions exactly, i am not sure why the shell-side of the madeleines do not have a smooth finish compare to the back of the madeleines... and i thought madeleines are supposed to have the 'hump' on their back?
but overall, i find the texture of these small cakes rather soft and nice... mum like it too and even took one before she took her medicine (coz her med is to be taken after food)... and she even asked to set aside a couple for YX to bring to childcare tomorrow...
i am going to try out the other madeleines recipes i googled... but if you want something simple, you should give this a try!
45ml melted butter
45gms plain flour
3/4 tsp of green tea powder or cocoa powder
40gms caster sugar
1 medium egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
some chocolate chips (for the chocolate madeleines, but you can put them in the green tea ones too)
(this is a half recipe - i did one lot for green tea, and one lot for chocolate)
1. Preheat oven to 180C and grease the madeleine pan with some melted butter
2. Sieve the flour, green tea powder (or cocoa powder) and baking powder and set aside (i did not sieve these, hence, there are some tiny lumps in my madeleines :( )
3. Mix the egg and sugar together till pale and thicken
4. Mix in the flour mixture in two or three batches, then slowly add in the melted butter and stir till well combined (mixture should be thick and gluey, and not too runny)
5. Spoon the mixture to fill the pan to 3/4 full and top with some chocolate chips (you can top some azuki beans for the green tea ones, but i omit this)
6. Bake for 10 - 15 mins, depending on the size of your madeleines. The madeleines are ready when it spring back whe lightly pressed, or insert a skewer and it comes out clean.
