Honey Madeleines

(Makes 12)

These Honey Madeleines are quick, easy to make and delicious!

I always make a few batches in the run up to Christmas so that I can welcome any friends and family that drop by to share in some festive cheer.

Trust me when I advise that you should make a few batches. I have been known to eat all 12 of these cute, light, fluffy darlings when they are warm. They are that good.

100g Butter

100g Golden Caster Sugar

100g Plain Flour

2 Large Eggs

2 Tbsp honey, warmed

½ Tsp Baking Powder

Icing Sugar, for dusting

Preheat your oven to 165C / gas 4.

Brush your madeleine tray with a little butter.

Whisk the eggs and sugar in a bowl until pale, light and fluffy. Sift in the baking powder and flour. Whisk to combine, then add the melted butter and honey. Leave to stand for 30 minutes.

Using a teaspoon, fill each mould three-quarters of the way up with the batter. Bake for 8-10 minutes until risen and golden, then tip onto a cooling rack. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. Sieve a little icing sugar over them.
