I can't believe it has been nearly 5 years since I blogged. How fast time flew. It has certainly been a whirlwind of a year for the whole world and how I wish things would go back to being normal again. How have you all been? I believe many started spending more time at home and also more home cooking this past year. I have definitely been doing that, with extra time in hand now.
I have also been trying out new recipes since the kids are bigger now and they love trying out new food. Here's one such recipe. A delightful tea time treat. Do give it a try and let me know how it goes.
3/4 cup castor sugar
2 eggs and 1 egg yolk
1 cup plain flour, sifted with 1/4 tsp baking powder
zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
5 oz melted butter
In a bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar till it is pale and fluffy. It will be about double in size.
Then add the sifted flour, lemon zest, vanilla paste and fold gently. Add melted butter slowly and gently mix it in.
Cover and keep aside about 30 mins or it can be made earlier and kept in fridge.
Heat up oven to 180C.
Butter and flour the madeleines tray and pour the batter evenly in each well. This makes 12 madeleines.
Bake them for about 10 mins. Let them rest about 5 mins before gently tapping the tray to release the madeleines. Serve warm with a cup of coffee or tea.
