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.
Bon Appetit, January 2000
2 large eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 cup all-purpose flour
10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, melted, cooled slightly
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.)
