Madeleines Marbrées

15 Jun

Tonight my husband and I are going to watch the World Cup game at our friends’ place. And what a gathering would be without food!!! They will prepare the sandwiches and I thought of baking something sweet.

These marbled madeleines are perfect with a cup of juice. Of course I tasted one, well, two, and I liked it, it is sweet, soft, spongy and chocolatey. But I didn’t experience any awakening like Proust did upon tasting a madeleine dipped in tea. I just enjoyed it. And the madeleines were nicely hump-backed with a dark golden color.

After few bakings you get to know how to deal with the batter inside the oven regarding the heat.

Madeleines Marbrées

-3 eggs

-150g half-salted butter

-150g flour

-1 tbsp instant-dry yeast

-150g sugar

-1 sachet sugar-vanilla

-80g chocolate melted (70% cocoa)

Melt the chocolate. Set aside to cool. Sift together the flour and the yeast. Beat the eggs, sugar then incorporate the flour and the butter and mix.

Divide the batter between 2 bowls: mix one with the chocolate and the other with the vanilla sugar. Refrigerate for at least one hour.

Preheat the oven to 270C. Pour the two batters in the moulds consecutively and with a toothpick, marble the batter. Do not fill completely the moulds.

Bake for max. 4 minutes then low the heat to 200C then continue baking until the madeleines are golden brown for 6 minutes.

Wait few minutes before unmolding the cakes.

    Oooh madeleines!! I love them to death and I have never eaten home-made ones, much less thought of baking them! I will be adding these to my To Bake list 🙂

    I won’t tell her, I think when she tastes one she’ll forgive you instantly.

    It was a nice night, I enjoyed the gathering, the food and most of all the madeleines. However the match wasn’t a satisfactory for most of us, yet I look forward for the next matches in addition to the next baked thing you will surprise me.

    Yup I was surprised when you took out the madeleines from the bag, it was a yummy, juicy, fluffy sweet.

    I wait patiently for the classic :).
