Madeleines

Since this is my daughters name, she requests these regularly.

2 eggs
1/3 cup white sugar
3/4 cup sifted flour
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp citrus zest
1/3 cup melted (but cool) butter

Butter and flour your madeleine moulds. Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla on HIGH until light coloured and tripled in size. Usually somewhere around 10-15 minutes. Stir in the zest, and fold in the flour. Fold in the melted butter. Spoon batter into moulds almost to the top. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes at 325. Cool on racks and sprinkle with sugar (coloured is nice) while still warm.

Yum!! I love madeleines!! We still don't possess a proper madeleine form, so we use our ciambelle form (sort of muffin pan, but each centre is elevated so it will make ring formed little cakes), it also works fine just as well!

Mmmm... Madeleines! They are my favourite and I make them fairly often. I usually brush them with strawberry or raspberry jam and roll them in coconut. By the way that is a nice name for your daughter Alix.

Sounds good Alix. I had to google the madeleine mold, which to me looks like a muffin pan, yet these are cookies right? Which citrus zest do you add to yours?

Actually, though Alix posted this on the "cookie" section (and if her version is the same type of madeleines I know), madeleines are more like cakes, rather than cookies. Their textures are close to muffins.

I agree with urmaniac. Madeleines are small cakes. The moulds are the same as the ones used for creme caramel which are slimmer and taller than muffin cups.

The most popular shape for madeleines that are seen in Italy (also have seen these in Spain as well) is a seashell shape, like this one

Yep, thats the madeleine pan alright. And yes, they are more like individual cakes, but my Madeleine calls them cookies, so cookies they are! LOL.

And I switch off the zest. I most often use orange zest because I like the richer colour and flavour, but I've used both lemon and even lime once (don't recommend that one!)
