The hunt is on for some lovely lemon madeleines!

Madeleines are super easy to make if you have the pan!
I'd hate to see you hand carving these!

Today is Tea Time Tuesday so I am reposting this recipe and invite you to visit Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage   and also

These madeleines are so easy to bake....you will get about 40 mini madeleines or 24 large ones if you have the large pans. I prefer the mini bite size ones!

You will need: 2/3 cup sugar, 3 eggs plus 1 more egg yolk, juice from 1 small lemon, and zest from that lemon...also a pinch of salt, and 1/4 cup sifted flour and 1 stick of butter melted.
Butter each section of the madeleines baking pans......in a medium deep bowl beat the sugar, eggs, and lemon juice and then fold in the flour and mix in the butter - stir all ingredients. Spoon the batter into the mold and fill 2/3 of the way.
Bake 18 minutes for the mini's or 20 minutes for the large at 350 degrees in a preheated oven.

These DO sound easy to make. Are the little molds easy to find? I've printed out this recipe. Can't wait to try it!

Bernideen, I have never made madeleines but they do look crisy and light; a perfect companion with a cup of tea in your fabulous hunting scenes teacup! What wonderful tea things! I love the hunting parties in their red jackets! Very English! Thanks for sharing this with us today.

Hi Bernideen
I sometimes wish I had the mini madeleine pans, mine are the large that make 24. They're always popular at at a tea.
I tried various recipes until I found the one I like best; I'll have to make yours too for a taste comparison.

LV said...

They certainly look tasty. Guess I will just wish for one of yours since I do not cook much anymore. It is hard to cook for just one.

Bernideen, Your teaset is beautiful and the Madelines look great too. I've never had them but may give them a try. Thanks for sharing!
