Brown butter & sea salt madeleines
- Preparation and cooking time
- makes 24
The brown butter gives a rich, nutty flavour to these delicate French madeleines, and a pinch of sea salt cuts through the sweetness of the sponge
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 210C/190C fan/ gas 61/2 and butter a 12-hole madeleine tin. Beat the eggs, sugar and honey together, then add the flour and salt, and finally mix in the butter.
- STEP 2
Spoon the mixture into the madeleine holes and bake for 8-10 mins or until puffed up and golden. Turn out onto a cooling rack while you cook a second batch. If you like, you can dust the just-warm madeleines with icing sugar and serve with a spoonful of cold crème fraîche.
