Dark Chocolate Madeleines




So last week I had no internet. This week I have no laptop. 

Luckily, my boyfriend has kindly leant me his laptop so I can post, whilst he’s lounging on his bed watching Seinfeld.


Dark Chocolate Madeleines


Seinfeld was first aired before I was born. I discovered it when I was on holiday in Cuba at Christmas. I had loads of American TV channels, and spent far too much time in my room watching awesome cooking programmes and drooling over the fast food adverts. 

As well as that I watched a ton of Seinfeld. I love it!

Of course nobody can have a TV marathon without a snack and drinks. Whilst I was in Cuba a drank a lot of Cuban coffee from the coffee maker in my room, leading me to watch more TV since I was so wired. 

Now I’m home and I set out to have a TV marathon, I usually fall asleep. Fail. I’m only 21. 


Dark Chocolate Madeleines


Hello dark chocolate madeleines. The perfect delicate little snack to have with a big cup of freshly brewed coffee and the TV show you’re currently obsessed with. 

Light enough that you don’t feel like a beached whale when you gorge on them (which you will), but with a powerful chocolatey kick.

 I definitely think that a madeleine pan is a great investment. They’re just so cute. 

I recently saw a mini madeleine pan and now I need it!

Dark Chocolate Madeleines
Yields 12
Write a review
  1. 75g plain flour
  2. 25g cocoa powder
  3. 100g caster sugar
  4. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  5. 1 tsp vanilla essence
  6. 100g melted butter
  7. 1 tbsp honey
  8. 1 egg yolk
  9. 2 egg whites
  1. Heat oven to 170C
  2. Butter a 12-hole madeleine mould and dust lightly with cocoa.
  3. Mix the flour, cocoa and sugar in a bowl.
  4. Put the butter, egg yolk, honey and vanilla into a separate bowl and whisk with a fork to mix.
  5. Whisk the two egg whites until stiff.
  6. Fold the butter/egg yolk mixture into the dry ingredients until evenly mixed. This will make a stiff paste.
  7. Fold in the egg whites in three batches using a whisk. The first addition will loosen up the mixture allowing you to keep the air in the egg whites during the next two additions.
  8. Divide between the prepared moulds (use a piping bag with a large nozzle (so not to loose air) to make things easier)
  9. Bake for 10-12 mins until darker and firm to the touch.
  10. Leave to cool in the moulds for a few minutes, then turn out and cool on a wire rack.
  1. Serve with freshly brewed coffee. Yum!

    I totally know what you mean! I’ve gone through phases of being totally obsessed with Seinfeld, then I’m totally over it…and then a few years later it starts up again. Somehow it’s still just as funny the second or third time through! These madelines look like the perfect thing to accompany some quality TV viewing. They’re real…and they’re incredible!
