The typical french tea time cake: madeleines! Every body loves them, from 2 to 100 years old!
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Difficulty: Very easy
Ingredients (for around 20 madeleines):
- 2 eggs
- 100 gr of sugar
- 100 gr of flour
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 50 gr of butter
- 1 pinch of salt
In a bowl, mix eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, butter and salt together. You can melt the butter to make it easier to incorporate in the dough.
Put the preparation in the fridge for 30 minutes, so the madeleines will rise better.
Put the dough into madeleines tins and cook in the oven for around 15 minutes, until the madeleines get a goldy color.
Tip: add some orange blossom, lemon or vanilla flavor to change the taste of your madeleines.
