Madeleine 马德琳蛋糕

My little son Desmond like Madeleine a lot. It started when both of us watching a Taiwan TV drama together (the story line was about baking and love) the other day. He was attracted by this Madeleine and requested me to make for him. At first,  I was using the recipe provided in the drama which required to rest the batter overnight in the fridge. The madeleine turned out to be hard and quite dry but my son finished them all. I guess this recipe was failed due to no raising agent is added.



 
I adapted a new recipe, don't need mixer but simply just use a hand whisk to mix. And also using very basic few ingredients..
 
And we love this madeleine, it was buttery, moist and has a hint of lemon aroma! But the sweetness is slightly on high side..but still acceptable for this type of French cake.
 
 I forgotten to grease the pan, resulted a bit of cake stick to the pan..and also on slight over bake.

Hi Sonia, nice madeleines. .. coincidentally my big boy also likes these madeleines and he named them 'dinosaur eggs' whenever we buy from bakery as I'm unable to bake these cos I don't have madeleines mould.

很诱惑的马德琳!
这个也是我心中的一款期待,我在2012年时收到Jane 寄来的马德琳模子,可是至今还没做过,皆因模子过大进不了我的迷你烤箱,有点无奈。
看了你家的马德琳,有股冲动,想找架大点的烤箱或数个“个别”式的马德琳模子,然后烤炉,哈。。。哈。。。。。 ,谢谢你的分享。

Hi Sonia,

You are right that madeleine is really easy to bake with no electric mixing required.

Yours look very moist and buttery. Yum!

Anne Regalado said...

JJmum said...

Hi Sonia, I am baking them now. You did not mention when to add honey but I suppose it is after flour. Will post in Instagram later. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Sonia, i love to read your blog, and i think u make adorable and mouthwatering foto's.
I always use Madeleine recipe from Ble Sucre paris, it is known to be the best in paris. And you can easily get the recipe from the web.:)

Hi Sonia, can I bake these in a normal muffin or the kueh balu tray? Why do I have to pipe the batter instead of scooping with a spoon? Just curious. Thanks!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

teo ai li, maybe kueh bahulu tray is ok, if you muffin then you have to use mini muffin for best result. Yes you can spoon it. I pipe the batter as the batter is quite runny , after harden in the fridge, so pipping is easy to be handled.
