Madeleines Recipe

The recipe for madeleines has been on my "to do" list for a long time, but on the occasion that I got to get my hands on some silicon forms for madeleines. It was a wonderful and very fast process, I didn't have to grease the shapes, my madlens came off the tray easily and everyone was happy.

I got 27 soft and fluffy cakes from this madeleines recipe, I had 2 trays that I put alternately in the oven of 8 in each. Consider how to change the recipe depending on how many madlene fit in the shape you have.

We went for the most common version, we made them simple with vanilla, but you can add various flavors, cocoa, lemon / orange peel, seeds and even oatmeal - but also with the amount of flour. The madeleines dough should not be very thick, otherwise the cakes will be thicker and not too fluffy.


4 pieces
120 g
Melted butter
120 g
White flour
150 g
Baking powder
1 tsp
Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp
or other favorite flavors

Step by step


In a bowl put eggs, sugar and desired flavors - vanilla, grated lemon peel, etc.


Mix well with the mixer until the composition changes color.


Gradually add the melted and cooled butter, continue to mix a little more.


Add flour and baking powder.


Mix well so that they are not lumpy in the dough. You will notice that it is a little more liquid but so I recommend you leave it and do not add flour, you risk getting slightly denser madlene.


And the silicone form for madlene.


With a larger spoon, pour the dough into molds, I filled them, but you can also put 2/3 of them.


Bake them for 10-15 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 degrees.

Then let it cool in the mold for another 10 minutes.


They are removed from the molds and the tray can be reused immediately for another round of madeleines.

I had 2 shapes and I put them alternately in the oven, from this dough I got 27 cakes.


After they cool a little, arrange them on a nice plate and you can optionally garnish them with powdered sugar.


They are soft, fluffy and delicious, the children enjoyed them enormously.

Good appetite!
