Honey and Vanilla Madeleines

Hi again! Over the past few months I have been taking pictures of all of my creations but haven’t had quite the time to upload them on here. So over the upcoming days/weeks, I’ll slowly release them here. Today I bring to you some delicious madeleines! I love how it makes the house smell, so buttery and sweet. I especially love how they have a light subtle crunch on the outside when fresh. Sadly, this is lost once stored in a box, but don’t fret, they still are yummy nevertheless!


 Honey and vanilla madeleine recipe

Recipe was adapted from BBC GoodFood

Makes roughly 20-25 mini madeleines or 15 regular sized madeleines


  • 100g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g butter, melted
  • 1 whole egg, separated, plus 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g Melted chocolate (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 190C or 170C for fan forced. Butter up your madeleine tin and dust with some plain flour.
  2. Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl.
  3. In separate bowl, whisk the butter, egg yolk, honey and vanilla until mixed well.
  4. In another bowl, whisk 2 egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  5. Mix in your butter mixture into your flour mixture. Fold in your egg white mixture (half of the mixture at a time) until just combined.
  6. Spoon your batter into the moulds and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the outside if nice and golden brown
  7. Turn them out of the moulds and let them cool on a wire rack.
  8. Optional: Melt your chocolate (I used dark chocolate) and dip half of your madeleine into it. Allow it to set on some baking paper.

  1. Yum! I make madeleines all the time but never thought of adding vanilla and honey to them. Do you like green tea flavoured desserts? I added matcha powder to my mixture once and it turned out to be delicious!
