The last few days I was busy playing nurse at my sis'. They were all floored by the flu so an extra hand was just what they needed.

On one of the better days my sis felt like making some sweets. She had bought a madeleine pan some time earlier so we gave it a try. I must say they turned out alright. You could really taste the rich flavor of the almonds and the egg whites gave it a nice chewiness. They were just a bit to sweet for my liking, but otherwise yumm :)

We made half a recipe cause it was a try out, but the whole recipe should make about 12 madeleines.

  • 70 gr sugar
  • 60 gr almond powder/flour
  • 10 gr vanilla sugar
  • 20 gr flour
  • 2 egg whites
  • 50 gr butter (melted)
  • pinch of salt

  1. Preheat your oven at 200 Celsius and butter up your madeleine pan.
  2. Mix almond powder, vanilla sugar, flour and 40 grams of the sugar in a bowl.
    madeleine pan dry mix
  3. In a separate bowl beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt and 30 gr of sugar to a nice and stiff consistency.
  4. Bit by bit fold in the dry mix until well blended.
  5. stiff egg whites mix
  6. Add the melted butter (the butter is suppose to be liquid but NOT hot!) and fold in until you have a thick mix.
  7. Fill a piping bag with your mix and pipe into your madeleine molds. If you don't have a bag just spoon it in.
  8. madeleine mix  filled madeleine pan
  9. Bake for about 10 min or until golden brown.
  10. Leave to cool for a few minutes before unmolding.
  11. baked madeleines pretty madeleines
