Recipe by Jem Mars
Madeleines are a simple snack that almost everyone, including beginners, can make. Since I'm an avid manga reader, I found this recipe in Kitchen Princess and later developed it into my own version. This is the original, I hope you enjoy.

Great madeleine recipe!!! I love that this is for a small amount as the madeleines don't have time to go stale before they all get eaten!!!! I used Pillsbury Softasilk flour because it is pre-sifted for light cakes, it worked out great and created light, crisp, and buttery madeleines! I also had to know what Manga was and who Kitchen Princess was, so I found this on the internet....The story follows Najika Kazami, an orphan and an excellent chef from HokkaidÅ�, and her arrival at Seika Academy, an escalator school. Not only does she plan to become a great chef like her deceased parents, but she also sets out to find her "Flan Prince", a boy that saved her from falling into a river and gave her a cup of flan with a silver spoon with the school's emblem on it. She promised him she would make the most delicious dessert in the world. I found out that each recipe that the Kitchen Princess makes is also published in the back of the magazines. Wouldn't Julia Child just love that such a beloved French recipe is being taught and celebrated in today's publications for kids to learn and enjoy!!! Thanks so much for posting, Leslieee!!!! I enjoyed learning about the Kitchen Princess and I love your recipe!!!
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix the egg and sugar in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk.
- Begin melting the butter, preferably in a small pan for about a minute and a half.
- Add flour and baking powder to the bowl from step 1 and mix them together.
- Add melted butter to the bowl (You'll use some in step 4, so save some) and mix.
- Let the mixture sit for 10 to 20 minutes and the dough will thicken, it will then be easier to pour into the madeleine mold.
- Take a brush and put some butter on the madeleine mold and put a little bit of flour in it. This will make it easier to take the cookie out of the mold.
- Pour the dough into the mold.
- Bake for about 20 minutes in an oven preheated at 170 degrees (approx. 340˚F).
- Take them out of the mold and let them cool.
