Chocolate Madeleine with 1 Egg

Chocolate Madeleine with 1 Egg

This dessert is perfect for Valentine's Day.
It's very easy, but cute enough for a special occasion.
It makes a wonderful dessert served with ice cream and strawberries!

Ingredients: 5-6 small madeleines

Unsalted butter
50 g
Granulated sugar
35 g
◎Cake flour
35 g
◎Baking powder
3 g
◎Cocoa powder
10 g
35 g


1. Sift the ◎ ingredients. Finely chop the chocolate, melt with butter, and mix. (I melted them in a microwave.)
2. Add the egg and granulated sugar into a different bowl, then mix well with a whisk. Add the sifted ◎ ingredients, and mix some more.
3. Add the melted butter and chocolate, then mix some more. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 hours to overnight. Let the batter rest.
4. Preheat the oven to 180℃. Thinly grease the baking molds with the butter, dust with the cake flour, then pour in the batter with a spoon. (Before pouring the batter into the molds, mix it well again.)
5. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 180℃ and they're done. Remove from the pan, and let it cool. Using a bamboo skewer helps the madeleine come off nicely from the pan.
