SMS: Honey Chestnut Madelines


I love madelines even though I haven't had many. I have made more plain madelines (just a little lemon zest) and they disappear before I realize what is happening!


These madelines are a little fancier with brown butter, ground hazelnuts, and honey. To be honest, I think I prefer plain madelines. Not to say that these aren't tasty because they are. Just not my favorite.


The recipe can be found at Cafe Chibita.

You know what a madeleine is. I didn't have a clue. Looks good.

They look great Cristine! I wasn't thrilled with them either.

These look beautiful! I am looking forward to trying the lemon version. I thought these were delicious so I hate to see what I may think of the lemon ones :)

Beautiful madeleines! Lemon zest sounds like a perfect addition to these little tea cakes. :)

I definitely echo your sentiment about preferring plain madeleines. Yours look wonderful, mine got a bit overcooked so they were more brown than I'd have liked.

They may not be your favorite but they still look super cute and delish.

Sorry to hear you didn't love these! At least you have alternative madeleine recipes that you do love.

I have to agree with you that plain madeleines are yummy, but these are yummy too...with a spin to it. Thank you for baking along this week. I'm glad you (semi)-liked them. :)
