Chocolate Madeleines are the perfect anytime treat! In France when you order coffee, you always get a small biscuit. These days, it is usually a tiny wrapped butter cookie but at a posh address; you may be served a madeleine alongside your beverage. Madeleines are tiny little pound cakes and are not typically seen in chocolate but you know me…chocolate is always my flavor of choice.
Madeleines are easy to make.
You will want to purchase the special shell shaped pans to create madeleines. These precious pans are always a favorite buy for my ATOP travelers.
Butter the pan very well, but do not leave clumps of butter on the pan.
Flour the pan evenly.
Melt butter and add dark cocoa, mix well.
Add sugar and mix well.
Add eggs one at a time mixing well in between each.
Add flour and mix only until combined.
Using a kitchen scoop, portion the batter in the center of each shell. Bake for about 20 minutes until each madeleine is puffed.
