  6. Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients gently into the egg mixture making sure you do not to deflate the egg mixture.
  7. Gradually add cooled melted butter in steady stream, beating just until blended.
  8. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Using a spoon and rubber spatula, drop a rounded tablespoonful of batter into each Madeleine indention about ¾ full. You need 2 madeleine pans.
