Espresso Madeleines

Espresso Madeleines



4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
1/2 cup cake flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 large egg
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons instant espresso powder, dissolved in 2 teaspoons warm water


1. Position a rack in lower third of oven and preheat to 400°F. Generously butter molds of one 12-cavity madeleine pan.

2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Remove from heat, and set aside to cool.

3. Sift together flour and baking powder into a bowl; stir to combine and set aside.

 4. In bowl of electric mixer, using whisk attachment, beat together egg, granulated sugar and espresso mixture on medium speed for 30 seconds. Increase the speed to high and beat until mixture has quadrupled in volume and is very thick, about 10 minutes.

5. Using a rubber spatula, carefully fold in flour mixture, followed by melted butter. 

6. Cover batter with plastic wrap, pressing it close to surface to prevent a skin from forming. Chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

7. Distribute batter evenly between buttered molds, filling each cavity no more than 2/3 full. Bake until madeleines are light brown around the edges, about 8-10 minutes.

8. Remove from oven, and immediately invert madeleines onto a wire rack.
Serve warm.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
