Vanilla Madeleines

A lovely surprise for Mothers Day - yes a lovely Madeleine pan, I couldn't wait to get started.. As I had not experimented with these wonderful little treats before, I thought I would start with something simple.  A perfect batch of vanilla Madeleines was a result of this...

I just used the recipe from the BBC good food website and adapted this to remove the honey flavouring, although I think they would have been yummy too.
  • Ingredients
  • 100g plain flour , plus extra for dusting
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g butter , melted
  • 1 whole egg , separated, plus 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • icing sugar , for dusting

  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Butter a 12-hole madeleine mould (use a tiny amount of the melted butter) and dust lightly with flour. You can use tartlet tins if you don't have the a madeleine mould.
  2. Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl. Put the butter, egg yolk and vanilla into a separate bowl and whisk with a fork to mix. Whisk the two egg whites until stiff. Fold the butter mixture into the dry ingredients until evenly mixed, then fold in the egg whites in two batches using the whisk.
  3. Divide between the prepared moulds and bake for 10-12 mins until golden brown and firm to the touch. Leave to cool in the moulds for a few mins, then turn out and cool on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
