Rich Madeleine with Caramelized Butter

Rich Madeleine with Caramelized Butter

The caramelized butter and almond flour make this dish flavourful. It's moist, rich and thick because it contains honey.

Ingredients: 10 mini muffin-shaped madeleines

40-50 g
10 g
Cake flour
50 g
Almond flour
10 g
Baking powder
2 g
Unsalted butter
60 g
Vanilla extract
a small amount


1. Preparation: Combine the cake flour, baking powder, along with the almond flour, and sift together.
2. Make caramelized butter. Place the butter in a frying pan over medium heat, and melt.
3. Wait until it starts to bubble while shaking the pan instead of stirring.
4. When nicely browned, remove from the heat. Strain with a paper towel or a tea strainer. It will weigh around 40 g at this point.
5. Add the egg and sugar in a bowl and beat the egg in it.
6. Add the honey and mix until the mixture becomes white.
7. Add the sifted dry ingredients, and fold in with a spatula.
8. Add the caramelized butter, mix, and the batter is ready! Cover with plastic wrap, and let sit for about 30 minutes in the fridge.
9. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 180℃ in molds or greased muffin cups and you're done.
10. Addendum: I made these madeleines without letting the batter rest this time. They still rose and were delicious.
