Edible Flowers: Lavender Mini Madeleines

madeleines1

Here is the recipe for mini lavender madeleines that was served in my Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24 Cooking with Edible Flowers party.  This was adapted from Recipe#95009 at www.Recipezaar.com

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons dried lavender flowers
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted & cooled
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

Directions:

  1. Using a food processor, process sugar and lavender flowers until finely ground.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl and using a wire whisk, mix eggs, lavender sugar mixture and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually whisk in melted butter.
  3. Using a rubber spatula gently fold in flour. Generously spray Madeleine pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Spoon a half teaspoon of batter into each mini madeleine mold, leave the batter mounded in the center. (Put 1 tbs if using regular sized madeleine molds.) This will result in the typical”humped” appearance of the Madeleine.
  5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Immediately remove from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
