Bella's been trying out madeleine recipes in the new pan she got for Christmas. Some are too buttery (who knew?), some are too scanty. She was happy with this one, tweaked from the current issue of Tea Time magazine.
Heat oven to 350. Butter the madeleine pan.
Clarify 3/4 c. butter in a small saucepan by heating over low heat until brown and nutty, then straining through a paper towel in a sieve. Throw out the solids, keep the liquid.
and a pinch of salt at a medium speed, until thick.
2/3 c. sugar a little at a time, beating at a high speed.
1 t. orange flower water (or orange zest)
1 t. vanilla
and the brown butter.
Then 3/4 c. sifted flour.
Don't stir past the folding in.
Fill each madeleine well almost to the top. Makes two pans.
Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes.
