No charabens for today. :P The boys have been asking me for food one hour after their lunch these few days, decided to bake some Madeleines for them to eat for tea. As expected, they wanted to help, so they ended up doing almost all the work, I only helped them to fill the mould. -_- Madeleine recipe at the end of the post, quite easy to do, give it a try if you are looking for something simple.

The boys taking turn to mix the batter.

Ta-dah, the madeleines, fresh out of the oven.

The boys' portions for tea. They had apple juice instead. :P

And this is mine, but I only ate one, too much butter, too fattening for me, lol. :)

Pack a box for the hubby to bring to work tomorrow. It's one of those rare times he gets a box, coz I always throw his sandwiches and cakes in plastic bags, lol. :P

My dinner, on the plate are braised E-Fu noodles, fermented red wine grilled chicken and salad. Similar stuff for Daddy and the boys too, except they had stir-fry vegetables with fish instead of salad, they don't fancy their veggies raw. Hiaz.

Make 24 madeleines

2 jumbo eggs plus 1 egg yolk
150g sugar
150g plain flour (sieved)
150g unsalted butter (melted)
Lemon zest from half a lemon
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon baking powder (add into the sieved flour)

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Grease the madeleine pan with butter.
  3. Using an electronic hand beater, beat the eggs and sugar until thick and foamy.
  4. Add lemon juice, lemon zest into the egg mixture and blend well.
  5. Fold in the flour and use a spatula to mix well.
  6. Fold in the melted butter, stir and blend until the butter is well incorporated with the batter.
  7. Transfer the batter into the madeleine mould and fill about 90%. Don’t spread it.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes or until they turn light brown.
  9. Remove the madeleine pan from the oven and let cool on a cooling rack.


  1. I love madeleines. I've never made them by myself. I habe to buy a pan for it. Yours are looking so soft. I want to eat them! ^^

    1. Maya, thank you, I'm drooling over all your bakes! Wished I had time to bake. I got the individual moulds instead, find it easier to store, than the pan. :)

  2. Hi Ming,

    May I know where to get the Madeleines pan / moulds here in Singapore? I've been searching for one. :) Your Madeleine looks so delicious!

    1. Tk u very much. I bought mine from this shop on Facebook call shop and bake. I've also seen them at Daiso and Phoon Huat before. :)
