Moist Madeleines--Just Mix and Bake

Moist Madeleines--Just Mix and Bake

Adding milk makes these madeleines pleasingly moist. Give them a try for your afternoon tea.

Ingredients: 20-23 madeleines using the mold shown in the photo

★Cake flour
★Baking powder
about 1/2 teaspoon
a small amount
Unsalted butter
80g and some for coating the molds
Vanilla essence
to taste
Lemon juice
to taste


1. Put the ★ ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a whisk until there are no lumps.
2. Add the beaten eggs and milk into Step 1, and mix well with a rubber spatula until it's no longer floury.
3. Add the melted butter, vanilla essence, and lemon juice to Step 2, and mix well with a rubber spatula.
4. Once you finish mixing, preheat the oven to 180℃.
5. Brush the mold with melted butter. (You don't have to coat the mold with butter, but it makes it easier to remove the madeleines and easier to wash the mold.)
6. Pour the batter into the mold. (Don't fill to the tops, since the madeleines will rise while baking).
7. Bake in the oven at 180℃ for 18-20 minutes, and they're done. (For small cookie-sized madeleines, bake for about 15 minutes)
