Lemon Madeleines With Raspberry Sauce & Whipped Cream

Ingredients

1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
Zest of 1 lemon, more to tast

Preparation

1
Grease madeleleine tins and set in the freezer. Heat the oven 400°F/200°C.
2
Sift together the flour and baking powder. Melt the butter, and stir in the sugar and honey.
3
Lightly beat the eggs, and temper them into the butter mixture.
4
Whisk into the flour to make a smooth batter (don't over whisk as this will make the madeleine doughy instead of light and airy).
5
Pour into the moulds and bake until the cakes are puffed up, golden around the edges and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes, without opening the door during cooking.
6
Serve with seedless raspberry sauce (with a couple of tbsp of Grand Marnier) and unsweetened whipped cream! YUM!
