Indispensable : Lemon Madeleines

Ingredients (yields 24 large madeleines or 96 mini madeleines)
  • 125 gr melted brown butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 130 gr sugar
  • 1 TBS honey
  • 150 gr flour
  • 3 gr baking powder
  • Zest of 1 organic lemon
  • Using a kitchen aid robot, whisk eggs, sugar, honey and a pinch of salt until white pale
  • Add flour, baking powder, lemon zest and finally slowly incorporate the lukewarm butter
  • If using a metallic mold, brush with melted butter
  • Pipe in the dough forming a small ball shape at the base of each indentation of the mould (it will help the Madeleine to form its typical belly while baking and rising). You can also use a spoon and your thumb to distribute the dough
  • Bake at the last minute at 325 F./160 C. until golden brown (7-8 mn for mini-madeleines).
  • Unmould and serve right away
