French Food Friday...Chocolate madeleines with mascarpone and marmalade

recipe and photo from here

Bonjour mes belles,

Time to dust off your madeleine mould and make some very yummy chocolate madeleines...
3 eggs
140 gm caster sugar 
75 gm (½ cup) plain flour 
 25 gm Dutch-process cocoa 
 50 gm unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly 
 To serve: mascarpone and marmalade


  • Preheat oven to 220C. Whisk eggs and sugar in an electric mixer on high speed until mixture doubles in volume (6-7 minutes). Sift in flour and cocoa, gently fold to combine, then fold in melted butter. Spoon tablespoonfuls of batter into buttered and floured madeleine moulds, then bake until puffed and they spring back when lightly pressed (7-8 minutes). Remove madeleines from moulds and cool on a wire rack. 
  • Split cooled madeleines in half. Spread one half of each with mascarpone and the other with marmalade, then sandwich together and serve immediately.

Note These chocolate versions of the classic madeleine are split and filled with a dollop of mascarpone and a smear of marmalade. It's best to finish them as needed - they won't hold up in transport quite so neatly.

très bon vendredi à tous, Leeann x


  1. MIam, miam - if only my under-used madeleine mould weren't sent to the charity shop in my vain efforts to declutter my kitchen. Warm regards

    1. What a good girl you are decluttering your kitchen.

      I have a feeling that I maybe doing the same in the New Year in my kitchen and then start on my overflowing wardrobe :-)



  2. Yum, I love Madeleine's and have only made the plain ones so I will be definitely trying these! How many eggs in your recipe? Thanks, Jane x

    1. Hi Jane,

      I think that the gremlins got into this post and the first line of the ingredient list disappeared. The list has now been updated, it has 3 eggs :-)



  3. Oh my Leeann, you have combined my favorite flavors into a delightful treat! Delicious! Have a great weekend!
