Chocolate orange madeleines

8 servings
2 hours
12 min


Number of serving: 8
1 stick ( 8 Tbsp. of butter ) Melted and cooled.

3/4 cups of granulated sugar

1 Tbsp. of orange zest

1 Tbsp. orange juice ( use same orange )

1 cup of all purpose flour

1/2 tsp. of baking Powder

1/2 tsp. of sea salt

7 oz of chopped Dark chocolate


  • Preheat the oven to 374F. Generously grease and liberally flour a madeleine cookie tin.
    In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking Powder and salt. Whisk together and set aside.

    In a medium bowl, Beat the sugar and eggs on medium/high speed until the volume triples in size. This may take several minutes and you should have a beautiful thick 'ribbon' of batter when you lift the beaters out of the bowl.
    Stir in the orange juice and orange zest.

    Beginning with the flour mixture, alternate adding to the egg/sugar batter with the melted butter. Mix only until just combined. Refrigerate for about 45 minutes to an hour.

    Drop by rounded teaspoon fulls into center of the madeleine molds. Leave the batter mounded, don't spread it out. I found that I had to add more than a teaspoon, so adjust accordingly for the size of your mold. Don't worry if the dough does not fill out the entire mold. The cookies will take on the pretty pattern regardless of how big they become.

    Bake for 10 -12 minutes or until the edges just start to turn gold and the center of the cookies spring back when lightly touched.

    Remove from oven and immediately tap the tin on the counter to loosen the cookies. Carefully remove the cookies and allow them to cool completely.

    Prepare the chocolate: Melt the chocolate in a saucepan and pour into a deep dish or cup with a wide mouth. Dip half or 1/4 of each cookie into the chocolate and place on a piece of parchment paper until the chocolate is set.
