Description

Madeleines — are they cookies or cakes? Either way, they are so tasty, one just won’t be enough. Traditionally small cake-like desserts, madeleines come from Commercy ad Liverdun, two communities in the Lorraine region of northeastern France. Those French really know how to talk to the sweet tooth. These orange madeleines offer a twist on a traditional favorite by using adding orange zest and orange flower water to create a sweet and tart taste.

Ingredients

  • 100 grams sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon orange flower water
  • 90 grams wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 100 grams melted butter
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • powdered sugar (for dusting)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a small bowl, set aside.
  3. Place the butter in a saucepan, melt over low heat.
  4. Once melted, remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  5. Put sugar and eggs in a mixer and beat for about 3-5 minutes, until they thicken and become like mousse.
  6. Mix in the orange zest, and then gradually add the sifted flour with the baking powder and salt until everything is well mixed.
  7. Mix a little of the egg mixture into the melted butter with the honey and orange blossom water, and pour it back in the egg mixture and beat some more. Remove to a bowl and put the dough in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  8. Fill the madeline pan and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
  9. Remove, and once cool, sprinkle the Madeleines with powdered sugar.
