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!
Using the same recipe here :
2 large eggs
80g granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
75g plain flour, sifted
3/4 tsp green tea powder
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. Sprinkle the sifted flour over the egg mixture and mix on low speed to incorporate.
5. Fold in half of the melted butter just until blended.
6. Fold in the remaining butter.
7. Fill the moulds with batter till almost full.
8. Bake at 190 degrees for 8-12 mins till lightly spring back when touched or lightly brown.
9. Remove the madeleines and invert it on a cooling rack.
10. Make sure the moulds are cool before baking the 2nd batch. Leave the rest of the batter in the fridge (covered) while baking.
Yields : 15 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.
