Lemon-Blueberry Madeleines








Lemon-Blueberry Madeleines

3/4 cup cake flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1/4 cup sour cream
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup blueberry preserves
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter shells of madeleine pan extremely well.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, granulated sugar and lemon zest until creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in sour cream, egg and vanilla until combined; reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture and milk until well combined, about 1-2 minutes. Gently fold blueberry preserves into batter. Fill madeleine shells and bake for 10-12 minutes or until puffed, set, and golden brown around edges. Immediately run a butter knife around madeleine edges and remove from pan to cool.

Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired.

Makes 2 dozen madeleines

  2. I adore madeleines...something about their scalloped shape.

    You live in some beautiful wilderness...I'd love to cook up that fish. Enjoy the Mememorial weekend.

  3. Funny! You caught a rock, huh!? That's the kind of stuff I catch which is why I don't go fishing!

    Happy Holiday weekend! Bring on the blueberries I've got a ton of them in the fridge.

  10. Wow, that lake looks beautiful. That's so cool that that was your first time fishing. I would have loved to have seen your hair standing straight on end.

    Yeah, so what was all that stuff about fresh blueberries and you used preserves? WHATEVER you did must have been the right thing, because they look crazy good.

  24. Haha, what a fun excursion! I'm so impressed that you caught the first fish of the day. How awesome! (And rock fishing would be more my style, fyi.) Anyyyway, these madeleines look absolutely delicious. I really need to invest in a madeleine pan, for sure. As soon as I do, you can bet I'll be trying these!

  26. Wow! I can't help it but as soon as I saw your photo all I could think about was the commercial "give me back that filet o fish, give me that fish!" Hehe.

    Beautiful madelines!

  27. I usually put blueberry in muffin, but no doubt that in madeleine it should be just so good!
    nice job like always

  28. nice catch! my first fishing expedition resulted in my uncle smearing a fish all over my face and me squealing like a cut pig...goooood times. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ooh how fun! I want to try out fishing :). I saw the pic on FB, looks like you had a good time.

    These Madeleines came out so nice (great summer flavor combo too!). I don't even know how I'd begin even thinking about coming up with a recipe for these. They seem so delicate and tough to make. Hope you're having a great summer so far!

  30. Aren't you adorable? Love it that you let the fish go. ;)

    I've tried blueberries and lemon together in a layer cake and loved it - I'm also a sucker for madeleines and can't wait to try these, darling!

  33. Blueberry season makes my heart smile. I love combining them with lemon--and delicate madelines are a perfect way to showcase the combo!
    Looks like a fun fishing trip. Hope you had an ok holiday. I worked all holiday weekend, too. Ah, the joys of waitressing! ;)

  34. Blackened Bass Po-Boy with spicy tarter sauce.
    When I was a kid, your grandfather took me out on the same lake with a guide from the area. We would fish and then at lunch we would go to shore and build a fire and cook the fish right there. The guide alway brought a can of spam in case we got skunked.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Really? That's crazy. I never thought about people eating bass. I guess there's nothing wrong with it. It would taste really fresh.

    I'd like to go back! We should go fishing sometime. I have a license.
