Chocolate and Honey Madeleines Recipe
Makes 12-14
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C

Ingredients
60g unsalted butter - melted
1 large egg
50g caster sugar
50g plain flour

2 teaspoons cocoa powder
tablespoon or two of honey

Chocolate and Honey Madeleines
Method

  • Melt the butter, use some of the melted butter to liberally grease the Madeleine tray.  Put the rest of the butter to one side to cool. 
  • Whisk the egg and caster sugar together until it is thick and fluffy, the whisk should leave a ribbon trail when you lift it out of the mixture.
  • Measure the flour then remove 2 teaspoons of the flour and replace it with 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder.
  • Sift the flour and cocoa into the egg and sugar mixture and fold in.  
  • Add 3 tablespoons of the cooled melted butter, again fold into the mixture.
  • Half fill each mould and bake for just 8 minutes, until firm to the touch. 
  • Leave in the tin for a few minutes then turn out onto a cooling rack.
  • Whilst the Chocolate Madeleines are still warm brush them with a little warmed honey using a pastry brush.

I love it when a recipe fits into two baking challenges. This is my entry to April's Classic French baking challenge theme of Madeleines at Blue Kitchen Bakes.   


I am also entering these Madeleines into April's We Should Cocoa, over at Chocolate Log Blog this months ingredient being Honey with Chocolate.

  1. Haha, you've beaten me too it. My thought was the same as yours for these two challenges. I've become a fairly recent fan of madeleines and yours sound lovely. Thanks for entering them into We Should Cocoa

  3. A great combination and a genius way of entering both challenges. I can imagine the taste of a warm buttery honey soaked madeleine and it's a shame I'm all out of eggs! Thanks for entering into Classic French

  4. Jen has just reminded me about this one via her madeleine round-up. I didn't get an e-mail from you, so didn't include it, but will do so now.
