Madeleines


I love madeleines but not as much as my husband. He loooves them! He could eat the whole batch I make and not give us one! but he is a good guy, he shares. I love to have them with tea or coffee in the afternoon but my favorite thing to do is to have them with lemon curd spread on top, ahhh so good! Then I could eat the whole thing and not share. They make great gifts too. The truth is, I stopped buying pastries to take to parties long ago, I'd only buy one if I have no time to bake. I sometimes like to add finely ground almonds to the madeleines and of course, chocolate.   


Ingredients

1/2 Cup sugar
3 Eggs
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 Tsp baking powder
1 stick of butter, melted
Grated zest of 1 orange
pinch of salt

Pre-heat the oven to 400 F. 
Spray madeleines mold with non-stick spray and set aside. Wisk together the eggs and sugar until the mixture is pale and thick. Add in the flour, baking powder, salt and zest, mix until well combined and add the melted butter. Mix until smooth. Spoon batter into the molds and bake for 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
