These mincemeat Madeleines are a delicious, light alternative to mince pies; prepare the batter ahead, and you can produce fresh Madeleines in minutes
Servings: 12 medium sized madeleines
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time20 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs - (large)
  • 90g caster sugar
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs mincemeat
  • 1 pinch salt - (if using unsalted butter)
  • 75 g butter - (melted and cooled)
  • 1 tsp butter - to grease the baking pan

Instructions

  • Whisk the eggs and sugar together until they have doubled in size and are light and fluffy. 
  • Slowly fold in the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the vanilla essence and mincemeat. 
  • Slowly add in the melted butter, gently folding all the time. 
  • When mixed cover the bowl and put in the fridge for at least an hour, preferably overnight; the batter should be foamy and full of air.
  • Preheat the oven to 190C / 375F / GM 5
  • Melt some more butter, and generously butter the tray.  If there is time chill the tray.
  • Put a dollop of the mixture into each mould and flatten slightly.
  • Each mould should be about 2/3 full. Bake for 7 - 9 minutes until risen, golden and shrinking away from the edges of the mould.
  • Leave for a few minutes and then turn out.

Notes

Madeleines are best enjoyed when still warm and crisp on the outside. They can be stored for a day but will lose that just cooked crisp outside.
