As promised, here is my favorite homemade snack recipe of the week: Madeleines! (from Benoît Molin – translated and adapted from french, from France Info website)


Ingredients (for 16 madeleines):

2 eggs

1/2 cup of flour

1 Tbsp. of baking powder

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of butter (a little less than a stick) + some for the shapes

a pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 410 degrees F (210 degrees C).

Butter and flour 16 (3 inch) madeleine molds; set aside.

Melt butter and let it cool to room temperature.

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs with sugar, flour and salt until you get a homogenous dough.

Add melted butter and continue to mix.

Pour 1 Tbsp. in each mold

Put in the oven for 4 minutes and reduce heat to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 4 more minutes.

Take out of mold immediately


Let me know how it goes if/when you try it!
