Kabocha Madeleine

Taste the gentle sweetness of soft kabocha. These are yellow cinnamon scented Madeleines.

Ingredients: as many as you can make with one egg

1 L-size
Soft light brown sugar
35 g
Maple syrup
15 g
○White flour
50 g
○Almond flour
10 g
○Baking powder
1/4 teasponn
As desired
50 g, boiled and crushed
Salted butter
50 g
Rum raisin
As desired
As desired
Sweetened adzuki beans
As desired


1. Boil the kabocha, remove the peel, and mash. This time, I minced the skin and use a bit in the batter.
2. Leave the eggs at room temperature. Mix together the ○ dry ingredients. Slice the butter and set aside. If necessary, butter your baking pan and set aside.
3. Beat an egg in a bowl, then add the ingredients starting from the brown sugar up to the kabocha, in order. Use a whisk to mix well.
4. Heat or melt the butter, then add to step 3 while it's still hot. Pour it through a strainer and use a spatula to remove the lumps.
5. Add the kabocha peel to Step 4, and after mixing, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about an hour.
6. Mix the bowl once then pour the mixture into the baking pan. Top with raisins, adzuki beans, or nuts as desired. Bake at 360F/180C for 15 minutes and you're done.
7. I made 6.
8. You can bake them in mini-madeleine cups.
9. Here I used honey instead of maple syrup.
10. A present to my younger sister, along with chocolate cookies. She loved it!
11. Another Halloween version.

Story Behind this Recipe

Something I tried out for Halloween this year. They were soft on the day I baked them. Then soft and moist on the following day. Both were very delicious.
