The flexible silicon Madeleine molds were a birthday present and yesterday I finally tried the first batch following this
120 gr flour
1 ts baking powder
120 gr sugar
120 gr soft butter
zest of 1 lemon or/and 1/2 ts almond extract
In the bowl of your standmixer combine sugar and eggs and mix until thick and pale, add flavors. Gradually add sifted flour and baking powder and fold into the mixture. Rest the batter in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 200C. Spoon batter evenly into buttered and floured Madeleine molds (if using 1 mold, let cool between batches). Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. This recipe will make almost 36 small madeleines.This recipe came with the molds, but I searched the web and there is a wealth of recipes out there, so I bet there will be a Madeleine continuing story.
