• 100g Butter
  • 200g Flour
  • 150g Sugar
  • 11g Baking Powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 5cL Milk
  • 100g Chocolate
  • (1 lemon)
  • (vanilla sugar)
Step 1

‣ Start by mixing the eggs and the sugar until it gets pale yellow (blanch the eggs).
Squeeze a lemon and add the milk. I usualy add vanilla sugar here instead of using lemon but it's just a matter of tastes. Mix everything.

Step 2

‣ This step depends on the tools you have: if you have a sieve or not.
‣ In the first case sift the flour and baking powder over the previous batter.
‣ In the second case mix first the flour and baking powder with a whisk in another bowl and then mix it with the batter.

Step 3

Melt the butter. (Careful with melting in the microwave, it goes fast!)
Add it to the batter.
Preheat the oven at 240°C and leave the mixture in the fridge for 10-15min

Step 4

‣ Butter the moulds if needed and fill them up to 3/4 and put in the oven at 210°C for about 10mins

Step 5

Enjoy watching the madeleines growing in the oven !

Step 6

‣ When they are well puffed and with a nice golden color, they are ready.
Let them get colder before taking them out of the molds.

Step 7

‣ If you want to add chocolate icing, start melting it in a bain-marie (put water in a pot and the chocolate in a bowl floating over the water) or in the microwave (low power).
Be careful for this step, chocolate can get too warm fast and turn back into solid. (If this happens to you, keep the chocolate and make truffles)
‣ 100g of chocolate is enough for 13-16 madeleines.

Step 8

‣ You have the choice between 2 methods now.
‣ The first way is to dip the bottom part of the madeleines in the chocolate and place them back in the moulds upside down.
‣ The other way (that I would recommend) is to smear the molds with a layer of chocolate and place back the madeleines.
‣ Leave it in the fridge to let the chocolate harden

Bake the Madeleines according to your tastes: white, milk, dark chocolate, chunks inside the batter, coconut powder on the icing, nuts inside, dried fruits...
