...for knitting with Friends



Ingredients (serves around 24-30 pieces depending on size of the baking pan) 

80g very soft butter

100g sugar

2 eggs

grated zest of 2 organic lemons

Pinch of Sea Salt

 100g Flour Type 550

1/2 Tl Baking Powder

1 Bowl of Blueberries



1. Mix the butter with 1 tablespoon of sugar until creamy, stir the remaining sugar with eggs, lemon zest and salt until frothy in a second bowl. Gradually fold the flour and baking powder into the egg mixture. 

2. Add a third of the mixture to the butter mixture and stir well, then carefully fold the mixture into the other egg mixture. Pour the mixture into a large piping bag and chill for 3 hours.

3. Preheat the oven to 220 ° (convection oven 200 °). Butter a madeleine pan and dust with flour. Cut off the tip of the piping bag so that an approximately 8mm hole is created. Fill the molds 3/4 high with the mixture. Top each madeleine with 2 blueberries. Reduce the oven temperature to 180 ° (convection oven 160 °) and bake the madeleines for 14 minutes until the edges are deep golden brown and the domes are just browning. 

4. Take the madeleines out of the oven and let them cool down in the pan for a few minutes, then remove them and let them cool down completely on a cooling rack.
