Hello to all Zebra tenants and families.
This week’s recipe is perfect one for spring. Delicious, light and with a delicate hint of vanilla and lemon, these madeleines are really irresistible.
It was only after the gift of a madeleine tin that I tried this recipe. Madeline tins are widely available online, but I recommend Lakeland who provide good quality but very reasonably priced bake ware.
This recipe is really super easy, with each batch of 12 madeleines cooking in under 10 minutes. To ensure the madeleines come out easily use butter to grease the shapes and dust with flour shaking off the excess prior to filling.
As I final decoration you can dust the madeleines in icing sugar, melt chocolate and dip them in, or even spread with Nutella and sandwich them together!
To make chocolate madeleines I would recommend Rachel Allen’s recipe which you can find on line via the Good Food Channel UKTV. It’s a great easy recipe and very moreish.
