After a week on the road, I'm back, and just in time for a delicious Mother's Day treat. Coconut chocolate dipped Madeleines are super-quick and easy to make. Traditionally baked in a scalloped Madeleine pan, you can also use mini muffin pan if you don't have the real thing.
Ingredients
  • 6 Eggs
  • 200g Caster sugar
  • 300g All-purpose flour
  • 200g Butter, melted
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 orange
Instructions
  1. This recipe goes very quickly so it's a good idea to have everything prepared before you start.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200c or 400f.
  3. Measure out the eggs, caster sugar, all-purpose flour, melted butter, lemon zest and orange zest.
  4. Place the eggs and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Whisk this vigorously for 3 to 4 minutes until all of the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is silky smooth.
  6. Pour in the flour and use a spatula to work this in until all of the flour is toally incorporated.
  7. Add the lemon and orange zest and fold this into the mixture.
  8. Pour in the melted butter and fold this until totally incorporated.
  9. For demonstration purposes I am going to do both the traditional and muffin shaped Madeleines.
  10. Spoon the mixture into the hollows of the pans leaving just enough space for rising.
  11. Bake the Madeleines for 12 minutes until crispy and golden on the outside.
  12. Remove the Madeleines from the oven and transfer them to cooling racks. Allow them to cool completely before continuing.
  13. Once cooled, melt the chocolate in double boiler or in your microwave by zapping it for 10 seconds at a time stirring after each heating.
  14. Lay out a non-stick sheet or a length of baking parchment on your work surface. Dip the wide end of the Madeleines into the chocolate, shake off any excess and place them on the parchment.
  15. Sprinkle each Madeleine immediately with desiccated coconut and allow the chocolate to set before serving.
