Baked Sweets! Fluffy Chocolate Madeleines

Baked Sweets! Fluffy Chocolate Madeleines

These are moist and fluffy madeleines.
I recommend this recipe for beginners because it's easy and doesn't take long to make.

Ingredients: 6-7 9 cm madeleines

Eggs
2
Sugar
50 g
Cake flour
50 g
Cocoa powder
10 g
Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
Unsalted butter
50 g

Steps

1. Bring the eggs to room temperature. Place the butter in a heatproof container and microwave for 1-1.5 minutes. Or melt in a double boiler. Preheat the oven to 180℃.
2. Crack the eggs into a bowl and add the sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until the egg mixture forms ribbons.
3. Sift in the cake flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together from a height to incorporate air. Using a rubber spatula, combine with a cut and fold motion until the dry ingredients are only mostly incorporated. Try mixing around the centre of the batter, as if scooping the batter from the bottom, and turning it over.
4. Pour melted butter slowly into the batter and again mix with the rubber spatula. Please note that even if you mix the cocoa powder, it won't give the batter an even colour.
5. Pour the batter into cupcake lining to 70~80% full. Bake in the preheated (180℃) oven for 12 minutes or so.
