Tea Break with St. John Madeleines

I first fell in love with fresh out of the oven madeleines when I was at the St John’s bar and restaurant in Spitafields.

As soon as I got home I started looking for the recipe online.

Ingredients:

70g unsalted butter
1 tablespoon of runny honey
1 large egg
55g caster sugar
1 tablespoon of soft brown sugar
70g self raising flour

Method:

Melt the  butter with the runny honey and then simmer until the sugars caramelise.

Whisk together the egg with caster sugar and soft brown sugar until a trail can be left on the surface of the mixture (around 8 minutes on a kitchenaid mixer on speed 6). Sift in the flour then fold in along with the butter/honey mixture. Leave in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Grease the Madeleine moulds with butter and flour, tip out any excess then pop a spoonful of the mixture into each one.

Bake at 200 degrees C for about 10 minutes.

Best eaten straight from the oven…with a nice cup of Tea.

Happy Tea Break.
