I like to feel fancy. When I’m sitting in my purple robe trying to recreate the cast of Grey’s Anatomy on Sims4 while watching Grey’s Anatomy, while wearing my I Love Grey’s Anatomy shirt, I need a little something to make me feel poised.
I bought my lavender florets from Sacred Mountain Lavender for $10. It was the best smelling parcel I’ve ever gotten. These madeleines (which are small cakes, by the way) are fragrant, delicate, light, and should probably be eaten with an upturned pinky finger. And a white glove.
I bet that the ladies from the movie Titanic ate them, like Rose’s bitchy mom and the Unsinkable Molly Brown. Which lady would you eat your madeleines with? Sound off in the comments below!
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon lavender florets, crushed to release fragrance
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- powdered sugar for topping (optional)
- madeleine pan (you can find these on Amazon or some kitchen stores)
Preheat oven to 375degrees.
Sift dry ingredients into a medium sized bowl using a fine mesh sieve.
Beat the sugar, eggs and vanilla together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about five minutes.
Add flour mixture and melted butter. Gently fold the mixture into itself with a spatula until well combined. Don’t leave any flour chunks in there. That is not fancy.
Bake for 12-13 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the tops spring back.No over baking! Dust with icing sugar and serve with tea.
