- Madeleine preparation
In a small saucepan, melt butter with honey, vanilla pod and seeds. In a bowl, mix flour with baking powder. In another bowl, mix eggs with sugar and milk and mix with flour. Add butter and lemon zest and mix well. Using a pastry bag, fill the madeleine molds. Turn down your oven to 320°F and bake the madeleines until colored, remove from the molds and let cool. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.
It is important to place the cold madeleines molds on a hot baking sheet to help the formation of the famous bump. You could vary the flavors by using orange zest or chopped rosemary to replace the lemon zest.
