After a successful Scone Recipe Challenge, I thought I would create another challenge for all my baking readings.
I’ve made madeleines before, but this morning I didn’t have any plain caster sugar so I thought I’d have a go using Light Brown Sugar and instead of adding Vanilla extract I added Coffee Essence instead. Here is my recipe, I’ve changed 2 ingredients from the original.
Makes 20 Large Madeleines
1/2cup (113 g) salted butter, melted
1 cup (130 g) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 medium eggs at room temperature
2/3 cup (133 g) light brown sugar
1 -2 teaspoons of Coffee Essence depending on how strong you like your coffee.
Melt the butter in a pan and leave to cool
Mix Baking Powder and Flour together
With a small hand mixer, beat the eggs and sugar together until doubled in volume and leaves a trail in the batter mixture when you stir through it. Add the Coffee Essence and mix together
Sift the flour/baking powder ingredients, then add to the batter mixture and fold in very gently, trying not to beat out all the air. I used a ‘spon’ sent to me by The Spon Company a few weeks ago to try out.
Still using my ‘Spon’ I carefully folded in the cooled melted butter until all the ingredients are now combined to make a thick batter.
Leave to stand for 10 – 15 mins until the batter has settled and thickened a little more.
Add a tablespoon of batter onto each section of the Madeleine tray.
Bake in oven (Fan assisted) 180 deg for 8 – 10 mins, take care as these little beauties can burn very quickly, so use the timer.
So as with the Scone Recipe Challenge, make yourself some Madeleines, add your recipe to your blog, along with a picture and link it back here to this post. I in turn will print your Madeleine picture on the Recipe Challenge page and link back to your blog where people can find your recipe.
Happy baking, lets see how many flavours you can come up with. I’m looking forward to see what you all make.
