Simple Baking on a Sunday

Hello and welcome to two new followers, Wendy and Sharon.

We try to avoid to many cakes and biscuits in the week but do enjoy a little something at the weekends, today whilst I was doing roast chicken for lunch I decided I would make madeleines.

Lemon madeleines

100g caster sugar
100g plain flour
2 eggs
75g unsalted butter
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Juice & zest of half a lemon
Icing sugar for dusting

Mix eggs sugar and butter, (low speed) if you are using a mixer.
Blend in the flour baking powder, lemon and vanilla.
Cover with a towel and let the mixture sit for an hour.

After an hour give the mixture a gentle whisk and spoon into the moulds until three quarters full. Bake for 10 minutes at 190 c or equivalent .
Leave to cool and dust with icing sugar.

Perfect to go on this pretty plate which I bought from the charity shop yesterday for £1.95p
