Madeleines Recipe

This recipe had been on my "to do" list for a long time and, when I got my hands on some silicon madeleine moulds, I knew its time had come. It was a wonderful and very fast process. I didn't need to grease the moulds, my madeleines came off the tray easily and everyone was happy.

I got 27 soft and fluffy cakes from this madeleines recipe. I had two moulds 8 cups each which I baked alternately. Think of how to change the recipe depending on how many madeleines fit in the pan.

I went with the most common version and made them simple, with vanilla. You can add various flavors, cocoa, lemon / orange peel, seeds and even oatmeal. Watch the amount of flour, though. The madeleine batter should not be very thick, otherwise the cookies will be denser and not very fluffy.

Step 5

Mix well so that the batter is not lumpy. You'll notice that it's a bit more runny but I recommend leaving it like this and not adding more flour. Otherwise, you risk getting slightly denser madeleines.
