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):
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!
