Description

Almond and vanilla extracts flavor the simple batter for these French butter sponge cakes, a traditional small cake from Commercy and Liverdun in the Lorraine region in northeastern France. Once prepared, the batter needs to rest in the refrigerator for two hours before baking in a madeleine pan, its molds resembling something akin to clams. For a bit of flourish, you can dip the tips in melted chocolate or spinkle the baked madeleines with powdered sugar.

Ingredients

150 grams cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
110 grams butter (melted)
2 whole eggs
1 egg yolks
150 grams sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
salt

Directions

1Sieve the flour with the baking powder.
2In a bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar until light and frothy.
3Add the flour mixture, butter, extracts, and a pinch of salt. Mix all the ingredients well until smooth.
4Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rest in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
5Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
6Place a teaspoonful of mixture in each madeleine mold. Chill briefly.
7Bake for 5 to 6 minutes. When they begin to rise, lower the temperature to 180 C and bake for up to 6 minutes until golden brown.
8Allow to cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
