To get started with this particular recipe, we have to first prepare a few components. You can cook simple madeleines using 9 ingredients and 14 steps. Here is how you cook that.
The ingredients needed to make Simple Madeleines:
- Prepare of unsalted butter.
- Make ready of all-purpose flour.
- Take of baking powder.
- Get of salt.
- Make ready of large eggs, at room temperature.
- Take of granulated white sugar.
- Take of firmly packed light brown sugar.
- Prepare of pure vanilla extract.
- Get of freshly grated lemon zest (optional).
Steps to make Simple Madeleines:
- In a small saucepan, melt the butter and keep warm.
- In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt..
- In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the eggs and sugars at high speed until the mixture is thick and pale in color (about 5-8 minutes)..
- Beat in the vanilla extract and lemon zest (if using)..
- Sift about one-third of the flour mixture over the whipped eggs and gently fold in, using a rubber spatula or whisk..
- Sift and fold in half of the remaining flour, and then sift and fold in the rest. (Do not over mix or the batter will deflate)..
- Then take about 1 cup (240 ml) of the batter and fold it into the warm melted butter. (This lightens the butter making it easier to fold into the batter.) Then, with a spatula, gently fold the butter mixture completely into the egg batter..
- Cover and refrigerate the batter for at least an hour or two, preferably overnight (can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days)..
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Using a pastry brush, generously grease the molds of two – 12 – 3 1/2 inch (8.5 cm) Madeleine pans (preferably non stick – I make mine at home) with very soft or melted butter. Then dust the molds with flour, tapping out the excess flour..
- Refrigerate the pans until the butter hardens (about 10 minutes). (Make sure the pans are well greased or the Madeleines will stick and be hard to remove.).
- Drop a generous tablespoonful (can use an ice cream scoop) of the batter into the center of each prepared mold..
- Bake the Madeleines for about 8 to 11 minutes, until the edges are golden brown and the centers spring back when lightly touched. (Do not overbake these cookies or they will be dry.).
- Remove the pans from the oven and immediately tap each pan against the counter to release the Madeleines. Place Madeleines on a wire rack to cool..
- Best served immediately but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a couple of days or frozen for up to 1 month. Dust with powdered sugar before serving..
