Today it’s back to childhood and my grandmother’s kitchen with this adaptation of her famous madeleine recipe. I grew up loving these small cakes and I miss them so much I had to create my own version 🙂

Ingredients: (for 20 madeleines)

  • 50g raw sugar
  • 85g corn starch
  • 2 eggs
  • 60g of softened butter
  • 2g vanilla
  • 2g baking powder

Preparation: 15 minutes

Baking: 10 to 15 minutes -190°C

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, mix the corn starch, the sugar, the vanilla and the baking powder.
  2. Add the eggs one by one.
  3. Add the butter and mix with a wooden spatula. The dough should be thick and elastic.
  4. In buttered madeleine tins, place one tablespoon of batter. Bake on a tray at mid-height until golden.
  5. Let the madeleines cool down a little before taking them out of the tin.
