Almond Madeleines

This one is pretty "yum". The ingredients used are simple and more importantly for me, the batter need not sit in the fridge and can be used straight away. It's great as I bake at night during weekdays. I can get this done very fast and still go to bed same time every day!

Here's the recipe : (makes 16pcs for me)

What you need
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 stick (or 64 gm) butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup plain flour (sift twice)
  • 1/3 cup fine-grain sugar
  • 4 tbsp almond meal
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract

What to do
  1. Preheat oven at 180C.
  2. Beat eggs with sugar and salt until pale and thick.
  3. Add in the vanilla extract and almond extract and beat to combine.
  4. Fold in twice-sifted flour and almond meal until well combined.
  5. Pour in melted butter and mix well.
  6. Batter is ready for use. Grease and flour generously yr madeleine tray (mine's non-stick, so I skipped this step).
  7. Pour batter into mould until it filled up entirely.
  8. Bake at 180C for 12 mins (or springs back when lightly touched).
