This summer , my fridge was overcrowded with fruits that was given to me . So i ate some fresh , made some jam , baked some pies but i still ended up up with some lovely redcurrants that i froze for winter days . This day was today when i found in the bottom of my freezer a bag of redcurrants and decided to use it paired with lemon into a Madeleine recipe. In my fridge you will always find lemon curd so i had to use it in this recipe and it really gave a fresh kick to the Madeleine . A must try for Madeleine lovers.
Makes 12 Madeleine:
100 grs of caster sugar
*100 grs of flour
*100 grs of butter
*3/4 tsp of baking powder
*zest of 1 lemon
*2 tbsp of lemon curd
*3/4 cup of redcurrants
1.Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius. Melt the butter.
2.In a bowl best the eggs with the sugar until pale . Add the flour , lemon zest and the chilled melted butter and whisk well to prevent any lumps.
3.Place into a greased Madeleine tray . Press a few redcurrants in each Madeleine .
4.Pour the lemon curd into a piping bag and squirt it into each Madeleine then place in the oven for around 10 minutes.
5.Chill for 5 minutes before removing from the tray and dust with icing sugar.
