DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Lightly grease 2 shiny madeleine pans.
  • Beat the sugar, eggs, egg yolks and vanilla extract with an electric mixer for 5 minutes on medium-high, or until mixture looks thick and pale.
  • Add melted butter and red food coloring, and beat until blended.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together the cake flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  • Fold dry ingredients into the egg mixture.
  • Fill each cup of the madeleine pans about 3/4 full (about 1 tablespoon per madeleine).
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or when madeleines spring back when lightly touched.
  • Immediately remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
  • Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • Dust with powdered sugar just before serving (optional).
