You can find where I got the idea and technique Here..for the chocolate..meaning 5 mins in freezer and her pics got to me♥
I did go to the recipe she refers us to..she has a link there..
But I ended up varying it.
What I love about this recipe is that it is equal parts everything.
For us..only the 2 of us..I don't need a ton.
I used my smaller silicone mold I have had for yrs.I will do again with my larger metal one..You won't believe the mess I made w/ it the first time:(
So equal parts..
1 egg weigh it
same amount of sugar
same amount of flour
same amount of melted butter
I added a tsp of honey
I added baking powder and a pinch of salt
I added orange zest.
Mix all..cover w/ saran touching the mixture refrig overnight.
Then I baked gleaning this article here.Probably the best post on madeleines I have read.
I refrigerated my pan w/ the mixt in each cavity while my oven warmed to 425F.
I baked for 3 mins.
Turned oven off
Let sit in oven 7-8 mins..
I was then supposed to heat oven to 320 and bake 3-4 mins..
But after the resting time in oven OFF.My little madeleines were humpy and perfect.
Then I did le chocolat♥
Everything you wanted to know about madeleines is here..♥
I did try this same recipe in my coated larger molds and they were not the same at all.Deep is the trick and my small silicones are deep.
This was a great recipe from the book Baked..Suzie Durigon's book.
