Maple Madeleines

Ingredients

  • 4 medium eggs
  • 250 ml (1 cup) maple sugar (plus extra to dust the madeleines)
  • 420 ml (1 2/3 cup) flour
  • 5 ml (1 tsp.) baking powder
  • 250 ml (1 cup) unsalted butter, melted (200 g)

Method

  1. In a bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the maple sugar while continuing to whisk well.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder together, then add to the egg-sugar mixture.
  3. Whisk in the melted butter, scraping the bowl well.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the batter and allow to rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  5. Place the oven rack in the centre position. Preheat to 180°C (350°F).
  6. Butter the madeleine moulds generously and flour them. Pour batter into each mould to three quarters full. (If you do not have moulds, transfer batter to a pastry bag with a #6 round piping tip and form 26 madeleines on one or two large baking sheets.)
  7. Bake 20 - 25 minutes.
  8. Upon removing from oven, unmould the madeleines immediately and roll (dust) in maple sugar.
  9. Keep in an airtight container or even freeze, if desired.
