If you're a lemon lover, you'll love
1 cup flour
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
rind/zest of a lemon
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
3 eggs at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract or lemon extract
In a small bowl, sift together flour,
cornstarch, baking powder and salt.
Whisk in lemon zest(rind), set aside
beat together the butter, eggs, sugar,
and vanilla about 3 minutes
Add flour mixture to creamed mixture and
mix just until combined.
Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
The batter will thicken as it rests.
Spray molds/pans with cooking spray or grease by hand.
Spoon one tablespoon of batter into each mold.
It will not entirely fill the mold/pan but it will spread as it bakes.
Bake at 350 deg. for 12-14 minutes or until puffed and golden brown around the edges.
The madeleines will spring back to the touch when done.
Let cool 10 minutes,
Release madeleines to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
I sprinkle them with icing sugar.
