Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350. Butter mini madeleine pans.

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Let cool slightly.

  • Whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in eggs, milk, and browned butter until smooth. Divide batter among 3 bowls. To create 3 different flavors, fold 1 filling into each bowl of batter (sage, olives, and sun-dried tomatoes). Divide batter among pans, filling cups 3/4 full.

  • Bake until golden brown and firm, 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately unmold, and let cool completely on wire racks.

Although the flavor is great, the texture of these madeleines is very rubbery and greasy. They don't brown very well. I think madeleines should be made without butter. I am going to look for a different recipe that is true to the classic madeleine base.
