I am such a sucker for a good Madeleine recipe. Maybe it's the charming shell shape or the harmonious marriage of cookie and cake. Whatever it is, I am all for Madeleines, all of the time. They are never too sweet or heavy and dress appropriately for all occasions. My recipe for Mint Chocolate Matcha Mini Madeleines has all of those desirable qualities I seek in a maddie. But, they go a few steps further in the flavor department.
The Silpat Mini Madeleine Mold makes baking madeleines easy
These chewy, chocolate Madeleines were made using the new Silpat Mini Madeleine Mold. I've made my fair share of madeleines and I have to admit, I've had my ups and downs with them. Here is the big secret about madeleines, they are simple but can be finicky.
Traditional metal madeleine pans have a tendency to stick so there is a series of steps that need to be performed in order to achieve that thin outer shell and airy interior. Metal pans require lots of butter and chilling the pan for best results. But, Silpat's innovative nonstick Mini Madeleine Mold allows you to skip those steps and get straight to baking.
Make Madeleines with perfectly crisp outer shells and a tender, cakey interior every time
My Mint Chocolate Matcha Mini Madeleines bake up evenly and come out with that perfectly crisp outer shell and tender, cakey interior thanks to Silpat's lightweight and flexible baking mold. I like to bake them in that Mini Madeleine Mold on top of Silpat's perforated Cook n' Cool Perfect Baking Tray for the quickest and most even bake ever. The Chocolate Matcha Mini Madeleines slide right out of the pan and and cool quickly atop the overturned Cook n' Cool Tray.
Achieving the right texture and appropriate puff is the biggest battle when baking madeleines, so I delighted by the game changing and time saving results that I get with my Mini Madeleine Mold and Cook n’ Cool Tray. These simple Chocolate Matcha Madeleines are a breeze with this pan combo.
