These are my first home-made madeleines. I found a book last week about madeleines at “La braderie du livre”, very interesting book, has different kinds of madeleines, salty and sweet. And all simple and easy to make. I liked the book. So I bought it. I love their “coquille”, shell shape, so nice. And to make madeleines we have to have the ” moules à madeleines” so I went and bought one too. I love cooking-shopping.
These madeleines have sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. Three yummi delicious ingredients combined in one small cute cake.
They can be served as appetizers or as a side dish for a green salad. I’ll be baking more madeleines later on, sweet and salty too.
Next time when i’ll make madeleines with cheese inside, i’ll grate the cheeses because it will melt inside the cakes not outside.
Here’s the recipe:
-150 g flour
-1 tbsp dry yeast
-15 g fresh parmesan
-60 g sun-dried tomatoes
-100 g mozzarella
-30 medium leaves basil
-5 tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
-salt and ground pepper
Prepare all the ingredients; cut the mozzarella and the tomatoes to small cubes. And tear with your hands the basil. Set aside.
Whisk the flour and the yeast together. Beat the eggs with the parmesan. Then add the flour mix, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss together until combined.
Put in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 270 C. Grease the tray and sprinkle with flour. Fill 2/3 of the molds and bake for 4 minutes then low the heat to 210C and bake them for 6 more minutes until they are golden brown.
Wait 2 minutes then unmold the madeleines. Serve warm.
Enjoy. Bon Appétit.
