  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.
