Sweet Citrus Clementine Flavoured Madeleines

The Madeleine or the petit gâteau au beurre, is quite easily the perfect companion to afternoon (ok anytime) tea, a good book, or visiting friends. While patience maybe required in creating these delectable little bites, they are worth your every effort. The reward being soft little butter cakes that almost melt in your mouth.

As usual David’s original post shows the step by step process in beautiful photos, although he confessed to a slight user error. Read his amusing post here.

Madeleines
Servings: madeleines
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Prepare the Madeleine pan: melt 3/4 tablespoon butter, then mix in the 1/2 tablespoon flour.
  3. Using a pastry brush, “paint” the insides of the molds with the butter and flour mixture.
  4. Set aside.
  5. Using a hand-held mixer, beat the egg and sugar together until they become thick and pale.
  6. Whisk together the flour and baking powder, then sprinkle onto the egg mix and gently fold in.
  7. Add the melted butter, clementine zest and clementine juice; gently fold into the egg mixture.
  8. Fill Madeleine molds two-thirds full (a heaping teaspoon), and bake for 11 minutes.
  9. When they are golden around the edges, remove them from the oven and let cool 2-3 minutes.
  10. Using a thin spatula, loosen the edges and push the Madeleines out to cool on a rack.
  11. Dust with confectioner’s sugar.
  12. Makes 12 Madeleines

David's first trip to France took place when he was 14, and he returned as often as possible thereafter. However, it wasn't until his 50th birthday that he finally made it south to Provence. The beauty, history, charm, warmth, cuisine, and - of course - the rosé wines captured his heart. He shares his Provençal recipes here on Perfectly Provence, and his food and wine pairings monthly on the Provence WineZine.

David is a firm believer that sharing a meal with friends around the table is one of life's greatest pleasures. And if it happens to be in Provence, all the better!
