About this recipe: You can add some chocolate chips or raspberries for a bit of variety but these taste lovely on their own, with a cup of black coffee. If you use a flexible silicone mould, no need to butter it.


Makes: 6 

  • 120g butter, softened
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:18min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 240 C / Gas 9.
  2. Mix the butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well. Stir in flour and baking powder.
  3. Pour the mixture into a flexible madeleine mould but do not fill up to the brim because the madeleines will rise and could overflow.
  4. Bake for 4 minutes, then lower the oven temperature to 200 C / Gas 6 and bake for 4 more minutes.
  5. Set aside to cool for a few minutes, then pop them out of the mould. Cool on a wire rack.

I made these this afternoon. My Madeline trau only makes 9 small cakes so I made them in batches. Very nice, I added a teaspoon of vanilla and dusted them with vanilla sugar. - 25 Oct 2011
