HONEY MADELEINES

INGREDIENTS

  • 9 Tbsp Butter sliced into small pieces
  • 1 1/4 Dark brown sugar
  • 1.7oz Almond powder sifted
  • 4oz Egg whites
  • 1/2oz Honey, preferably from white flowers

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. After the butter foams, it will start to brown and smell nutty.
  2. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and allow to cool to 105F.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, almond powder, and flour.
  4. In a separate bowl, gently beat the egg whites.
  5. Stir in the honey and brown butter.
  6. Stir the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just incorporated.
  7. Refrigerate batter for 24 hours.
  8. Fill the madeleine molds two-thirds full with batter.
  9. For best results place molds in the freezer for 15min before baking.
  10. Preheat oven to 350F and bake madeleines until golden, around 12 minutes.
