Flashback and Foodie Friday ~Madeleines



This weeks flashback is to Dec 2007. I had recently purchased a couple of madeleine pans and tried out a recipe shared by my friend Carol at There's Always Thyme for Cooking. They are so rich and buttery. And really cute too! If you're looking for a reliable recipe, give this one a try.


Madeleines
Bon Appetit, January 2000

2 large eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
pinch salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, melted, cooled slightly
powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously butter and flour pan for large madeleines (about 3x1 1/4 inches). Using electric mixer, beat eggs and 2/3 cup sugar in large bowl just to blend. Beat in vanilla, lemon peel and salt. Add flour; beat just until blended. Gradually add cooled melted butter in steady stream, beating just until blended.

Spoon 1 tablespoon batter into each indentation in pan. Bake until puffed and brown, about 16 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Gently remove from pan. Repeat process, buttering and flouring pan before each batch. (Can be made 1 day ahead.)

Dust cookies with powdered sugar.

How about a flower flashback from June of '07

I was just looking at Madeleine pans today - now I wish I would have bought one!

No Mr. Linky today?

Terry & Dennis Macri said...

Your Madeleines sound wonderful. I have never tried making them..I think I am going to have to get busy and try them. They seem easy enough... Thank you for the recipe.

Debbie at Mountain Breaths said...

I have a very old Madeleine pan that DH brought home from his school from the Home Economics teacher. They stick every time. Any suggestions?

Linda said...

I haven't made these in years. Thanks for the inspiration. I will have to pull the madeleine pans from the back of the cupboard!

Marsha said...

I remember those beautiful madeleines ;) Of course every time I see a blossom it looks new and magical to me - what is this flower - I love the veining!

Sorry I have missed the last couple of flashbacks - soon I shall lots more time on my hands ;)

Kathleen said...

Still didn't make those, so many recipes, so little time..:)
Yours look wonderful..I have the little indiv pans that were my mom's..I really should make them..hers were never used, and I don't want to follow that tradition!

Suzy said...

Okay everybody..go make some! They're easy :-)

Debbie have you tried putting the madeleine pans on top of another pan? Mine are pretty thin.

Marsha that's geranium magnificum. It's one of my favorite :-) No need to worry about doing a flashback every week.It's just for fun when you don't have anything else to do!

Kathleen you do need to try especially with your Mom's old pans. It would make a good Blog post.
