When I organise play dates for my son, I go into a mamma-frenzy.  Each one of us want the best for their little ones but I don’t have much time to bake a homemade cake each week!

I thought I’d share with you my go-to recipe when I need to prepare quick and impressive play date food.  It only takes 5 minutes to make and 18 minutes in to cook in the oven. This is a last-minute madeleines recipe is a winner.

Ingredients for madeleines

INGREDIENTS (for 12 Madeleines)

100 gr liquified butter

100 gr self raising flour

70 gr caster sugar

2 tea spoons vanilla essence

2 beaten eggs

1. Mix all the ingredients together. Put all the ingredients in your mixer in no particular order.

2. Grease the tray

Spread a tiny amount of butter on the tray so that the madeleines won’t get stuck. To be extra sure, I sprinkle a bit of flour too.

3.  Place the dough in the tray

Don’t overfill the individual madeleine forms, they should only be 3/4 filled. If you fill them too much the dough will float over the age while cooking.

4. Start baking

Bake for 18 minutes at 150 °C.


Do you have any other super quick recipes you’d like to share?

I’d love to hear from you!
