Bake some fluffy madeleines with a soft crumb and subtle, comforting flavor.
Look out for the small bump like a belly-button that forms on the surface; it's the mark of a delicious madeleine.

Ingredients

Egg
1
Sugar
50 g
Cake flour
50 g
Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
Butter
50 g

Steps

1. Mix the egg and sugar in a bowl, and sift in the cake flour and baking powder, then mix some more.
2. Melt the butter, and add to Step [1], then mix. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.
3. Thinly grease the pan with butter and dust with flour (amount excluded from ingredient list). Fill the pan with the batter about 70% and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes at 190℃.
4. The small bump on the tops are an indication of delicious madeleines!
5. Adding honey makes the madeleine more moist, and gives them mild taste. Add 1-3 teaspoons during Step [2].
