Today is a sad and cloudy day and I would rather stay at home than leave my couch. We got invited to my husband’s parents new place for lunch and unfortunately I will have to leave my house at some point. Their flat is not so far from ours and this 15 minutes walk should warm me up. They moved last week-end and they wanted to show to Adrien their new appartement. With no more children at home, they were feeling like finding a cosy appartement not too big. So it is not too complicated to maintain the house.
They got the perfect place: 3.5 rooms, big kitchen, 3 balconies … They also have an extra room downstairs next to their cellar that Adrien’s mother transformed in an artist’s workshop. They look really happy and I can understand why. They have a little view on Geneva lake as well.
We just came back at home now. After this delicious meal and this nice walk, I feel so refreshed and like baking some Madeleine. I am sure that your children will love these soft Madeleine. They kind of look like littles boats, don’t you think? However not sure they float on water…
- 3 eggs
- 150 gr. of sugar (4/5 cup or 5.2 oz)
- 125 gr. of melted butter + some more for the molds (1/2 cup or 4.5 oz)
- 150 gr. of flour + some more for the molds (1 1/10 cups or 5.2 oz)
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- Blanch eggs with white sugar, which means mixing until pale yellow. Add melted butter, flour and baking powder. Mix. Leave dought to rest for 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 220°C (420°F).
- Generously butter your madeleine molds. Spread a bit of flour on top of your molds and turn up side down your molds to remove extra flour.
- Fill your molds with madeleine paste. Bake for 8 minutes.
- You will get approximately 16 madeleines. Leave your molds to cool in between two batches.
