I've had a madeleine pan just waiting to be used since I received it as a gift a few years ago. Another day that has been threatening to rain has pushed me back into the cave to create these little buttery peach goodies.
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
1/8 tsp orange zest
2 large eggs , lightly beaten
2 tbsp peach preserves
10 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
Mix all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Add in eggs and peach preserves. Gradually add in the melted butter.
Place dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Scoop approximately 1 1/2 tbsp of the dough and place in each large madeleine mold in a lightly greased pan. Gently press down a little with your fingertip.
Bake until the center rises and the edges turn a golden brown.
Best when served warm.
Bake at 400°F
