Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes



Ingredients (20 madeleines):                                                                 Utensils:

  • 120g of plain flour                                                                             * A Madeleine tray
  • 120g of granulated white sugar                                                        * 2 bowls             
  • 120g unsalted butter                                                                         * A wooden spoon     
  • 3 medium eggs                                                                                  * A grater
  • Zest of one unwaxed lemon                                                              * A scale
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder



  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, the sugar and the baking powder.
  2. Crack the eggs and separate the yolks from the whites. The yolk goes with the dry ingredients and the whites in a separate bowl.
  3. Whisk the white with a fork until you get bubbles on the top. Add them to the flour and yolks mix and combine.
  4. Melt the butter and wait until it cools down before pouring it on the mix.
  5. Add the lemon juice and the zest. Stir well.
  6. Pour into madeleine moulds and put them in the oven at 240°C for 6 minutes and then 180°C for 8 minutes. Your madeleines are ready when you see a little mountain on the top and a nice golden colour



Swap the lemon for ½ an orange or rose water.

“I really like mine with rose water and dry pieces of rose in the dough!”
