Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
130g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 eggs
130g caster sugar
2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon natural lemon extract
115g unsalted butter, melted

Limoncello glaze

Quantity Ingredient
190g icing sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
40ml limoncello

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C Grease 2 madeleine tins.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl. Place the eggs, sugar and lemon zest and extract in the bowl of an electric mixer and whisk on medium–high speed for 4–5 minutes or until pale and thickened. Gently fold in the flour mixture. Fold in the butter, a little at a time, folding well after each addition. Leave to rest for 15–20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the glaze, whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl until combined and smooth. Set aside.
  4. Fill the tins with the madeleine mixture until three-quarters full and bake for 7–9 minutes or until the edges are light golden. Turn out onto wire racks and cool for 2–3 minutes, then spoon over the glaze to coat.
  5. Repeat with the remaining batter. Madeleines are best eaten on the day of making.
