I am a big fan of Gordon Ramsay. I think he is a very talented, passionate and generous man in creating beautiful foods. After watching his video clip on Youtube, I decide to try out his delicious recipe, Madeleines, and it turns out so fluffy with light golden brown colour and extremely tasty. The only one thing different in my madeleines are that they only have flavour of creamy butter and lemon zest because I run out of poppy seeds (I know…I really wish I have it so the madeleines will even tastier, but it is okay because I can see myself keep making more and more madeleines in the future. To be honest, in my opinion, madeleines are much easy to handle compare with classic French macarons)
After baking, remove the madeleines from the oven and make sure let it cool for 2 minutes before tapping to let those madeleines off the baking tray. Making madeleines is a new experience for me in baking, but they are my husband’s favourite childhood snack. We have something similar in taste and texture as Madeleines in Vietnam, called Bong Lan cake and you can find it anywhere on the street.
Here is video and recipe on Gordon’s Youtube site. It is very easy to follow step by step and the final results just fabulous, come out exactly what he shows us.
