Green Tea Madeleines

Green Tea Madeleines 02

Have been wanting to bake something with Green Tea, could imagine the light refreshing taste. Finally decide on Madeleines, an excuse also to use the Madeleines Silicone tray and it’s been 1 year since I bake them! Gotten the smaller ones some time back and now looking for something bigger ones. The problem with using Silicone ones is it will not brown as nicely as alumiunium one, I’ve seen very pretty ones from Japan!

Green Tea Madeleines 03

Using the same recipe here :

You need
2 large eggs
90g granulated sugar (which I will suggest reducing it to 80g, it’s too sweet)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (essence)
1/4 tsp almond extract (essence)
75g plain flour, sifted
1 tsp grated orange zest
60g salted butter, melted and cooled
What to do
1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees. Do grease the moulds generously with room temperature moulds if you aren’t using silicone or non-stick moulds.
2. Dust the moulds with flour, tilting the pan to coat the surfaces evenly and tap away the excess.
3. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, granulated sugar and salt. Beat on medium-high speed until pale, thick and fluffy, for about 5 mins.
4. Beat in the vanilla and almond essence.
5. Sprinkle the sifted flour over the egg mixture and mix on low speed to incorporate.
6. Fold in the orange zest and half of the melted butter just until blended.
7. Fold in the remaining butter.
8. Fill the moulds with batter till almost full.
9. Bake at 190 degrees for 8-12 mins till lightly spring back when touched or lightly brown.
10. Remove the madeleines and invert it on a cooling rack.
11. Make sure the moulds are cool before baking the 2nd batch. Leave the rest of the batter in the fridge (covered) while baking.
Yields : 50 mini madeleines
Storage : Cover with plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 3 days. Before serving, heat the cookies in 120 degrees until warm, then dust with icing sugar.

    Hi Hi

    Lovely madeleines…

    For step 3, 5 and 6, do you use a spatula or the stand mixer? If stand mixer, using what speed?

    Could we use castor sugar, instead of granulates sugar?

    Real nice cakes…and nice pictures.

    The white plate is nice..some sort of special shape, from Daiso?

    Amazing….

    : )

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. I just finished baking these. My son loves madelines (we usually gets them from Starbucks, which can be expensive as you can imagine). I am so happy I can bake these now.

    I bought 2 sets of moulds (each can make 12). Next time, I need to double the recipe so I can make use of the 2 moulds.
