Very good and easy to make. I skipped the powdered sugar. I also got 36 instead of 24 and I think my Madeleine pan is standard size. Made for Spring 2014 PAC.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease 2 shiny madeleine pans.

  5. In a separate bowl, sift together the cake flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  6. Fold dry ingredients into the egg mixture.
  7. Fill each cup of the madeleine pans about 3/4 full (about 1 tablespoon per madeleine).
