Madeleines small French cakes baked in special baking trays that give them a shell-like shape. The Spanish counterparts, Madalenas, are sometimes served in paper cases and then resemble muffins.

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Beat the eggs, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl until frothy.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, and lemon zest, and fold into the egg mixture. Fold in the melted butter.
  3. Divide the dough into greased madeleine molds, keeping in mind that the dough will rise in the oven to fill the molds.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C / 350°F for 12–15 minutes until the cakes are springy but not browned.
  5. Cool and unmold the madeleines.
  6. Serve fresh.
