Madeleines are small French cookies shaped as shells. They are not flaky, rather are kind of small sponges, fluffy and soft. The taste could be modified by a wide range of additional ingredients. I decided for rose and coffee. They are both yummy, try!
- ½ cup butter, melted
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 30 ml milk
- ¾ cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons pure rose extract
- few drops pink food colouring
- 1 tablespoon coffee granules brewed in 1 tablespoon hot water
Melt the butter and cook for few minutes until light brown in colour. Set aside to cool.
In a bowl of a stand mixer bet together eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in milk and liquid honey. Add flour, baking powder and butter, mix until combined. Divide the dough in two. Add rose extract and pink colour to the first half, mix. Add brewed coffee to the second half, mix. Place both mixtures in the fridge for overnight.
Next day preheat oven to 375 °F. Grease madeleine pans with butter and dust with flour. Fill each hole with dough to the ¾. Bake for 10-12 minutes until rise and light brown in colour. Cool on a wire rack.
