Tuesdays With Dorie: Lemon (Orange) Madeleines


I know… I am a bit backwards in my TWD posts, but, well, there it is.

Although the recipe from Baking Chez Moi calls for Lemon, I had plenty of oranges around the kitchen, and decided to use that instead of lemon. I do so love the flavor!

I am sad to say that I had such lovely bumps on my Madeleines…but they went away when I turned them out onto my cooling rack. I had cold batter in a cold pan in a hot hot oven, but the cooling rack pressed them in slightly. At least it didn’t effect the lovely delicate flavor! I found they were just as good the next day, having stored them in a ziploc bag.

The great thing about these is that it is a complete make it ahead recipe. The batter keeps in the fridge for two days before you can bake them off just in time for your guests. And they look so elegant that no one would know how easy they really are!
