Madeleine (Butter rich recipe)


Madeleine is one of my favorite cookies (or you can call it mini cake, haha), and when I started baking it's one of the recipes that I wanted to make. 

 

This recipe is my beloved recipe, I posted it in my blog a long time ago but I didn't post how-to photos and videos. So I decided to repost and revise the recipe.

I recalculated the ingredients to scale the recipe down as I think that the original one is too large.

You can see that I use the word "butter-rich" as this recipe contains more butter than others. Mostly the recipes for Madeleine have an equal amount of butter, egg, sugar, and flour but this recipe calls for a smaller amount of eggs.

So you need to beat the egg and sugar over the simmering water to loosen the egg or you will have a hard time as the mixture won't be tripled in volume. 


Serve it with a cup of tea (or coffee) is the best. My sister, she loves to warm it again in the toaster, it's her special way of eating haha.
If you like you can coat it with chocolate to make it more delicious (and beautiful) too.

PS. I know that I post recipes less often, well, I just got a new game soft (I waited for it for 10 years!!!!). Right now I devoted all my time to playing it. Anyway, if you want to chat, you can leave a message on FB or youtube, I will try my best to reply ^^.
