  • Eggs 42g

  • Vanilla Powder 1g
  • Sugar 40g
  • Honey 5g
  • Cake Flour 45g
  • Baking Powder 1.5g

Vanilla powder:

You can make vanilla powder by drying out used vanilla beans and grinding them into powder. I will upload another video separately that covers this. If you don't have vanilla powder, you can scrape vanilla seeds and use them (if using vanilla seeds, then reduce the quantity to half)

  1. Add the eggs, milk, salt, vanilla powder, sugar, and honey into a bowl and whisk.
  2. Sift in the cake flour & baking powder and mix3. Add in the melted butter (40~50°C) and mix until you get a homogenous batter.
  3. Pipe it into the madeleine pan.
  4. Bake at 180°C for 9~10mins (Pre-heat to 200°C)



All ingredients need to be at room temp (20°C) apart from the melted butter.

How to store:

Store in air-tight container and store at room temp up to 4~5 days.
