Chocolate and Coffee Madeleines

Chocolate and Coffee Madeleines

These Chocolate and Coffee Madeleines are like no other, I mean…you have that robust chocolate flavor plus the rich roast-y magnificent taste of coffee in one single bite, this recipe for french madeleines will suddenly become your favorite too. 

French Madeleines are easy-to-do, they’re delicious and you can easily put your touch into it, there are so many combinations you can try, you can make them to taste anything you want, and the scent of recently baked madeleines, ufff! nothing can beat that smell.

Chocolate and Coffee Madeleines

To make madeleines you’re going to need the tray to give them the characteristic sea shell shape that these french buttery little cakes have, there are silicone molds but I prefer the old-school metal trays, like the golden crust that cover your cakes is more achievable with steel pans… Well, that has to do more with appearance and a tiny bit with texture too, than with flavor but in case you’re with me on that view, you can find the perfect madeleine pan right here ;D 

The key to the ideal French madeleine is temperature, uh-huh! so you have to chill your batter at least for two hours before baking. You can even prepare the mixture the day before and let it rest in the fridge overnight in cling film, the next morning you can pour your batter into the tray and bake, they’ll be awesome :D
