3/4 tsp baking powder
100 grams / 3 1/2 oz butter, melted and cooled slightly, plus extra for greasing
- Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
- Brush the madeleine tray with melted butter then shake in a little flour to coat, tapping out the excess.
- Whisk together the eggs and the sugar in a bowl until frothy. Lightly whisk in the remaining ingredients. Leave to stand for 20 minuted before carefully pouring into the prepared madeleine tray.
