Funfetti Madeleines with Cake Batter Dip

  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted, cooled to room temperature
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • Sprinkles
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup thick Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • Red food coloring, optional
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.  Butter madeleine pan well and dust with flour.  Place in freezer to chill.

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 and sugar until creamy - about 1 minute.  Beat in eggs, vanilla and almond extract until well combined and frothy - about 2-3 minutes.  Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in dry ingredients until just combined.  Stir in the desired amount of sprinkles until just combined.

Refrigerate batter for 30 minutes.  Spoon the batter into prepared madeleine pan.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.  Remove madeleines immediately from pan and cool on a wire rack.

  1. I loooove madeleines. They're so cute, and satisfies many a cake craving. I like this funfetti version! Can you believe I've never tried Fruity Pebbles?

  2. Fruity Pebbles are my favorite cereal! I used to eat a bowl for dessert when I was little. These madeleines are so pretty!! Love that you added almond extract

  4. What a sweet recipe. It's so fun and perfect for the last month of summer before the grind starts up again. Oh wait, you're right, I don't go to school either, so the grind is all year long!

  5. I suspect I'd eat all of these in a matter of minutes. I am such a sucker for hand-held treats!

  6. Dipping madeleines in cake batter is an excellent idea! And you should definitely make more ice cream!

  7. So creative! They'd be perfect for a birthday party "dessert bar". Looks delicious :)
