November 8, 2011 – Di of Di’s Kitchen Notebook chose Mini Madeleines on page 172 of BFNHTY by Dorie Greenspan.
Sorry I fell off the grid for a couple of weeks. My laptop died. I can imagine a scene like in Finding Nemo there exists a group of laptops speaking about me in hushed tones- she is a laptop killer. My good husband also left for a 2 week work trip, so I did the solo parent thing for my 3 boys.
So, back to the Madeleines. These are just lovely. I made half mini and half full size. I got better browning on the full size ones as I wasn’t worried about over baking them so much.
I used orange zest, as that is what I found first in the fridge. Orange and honey always works well I think anyway.
Great recipe. This is in the make again basket.
