Are you preparing your little ones’ birthday party at home and don’t know what sweets to put on the party table?
I leave here a suggestion of Madeleines with chocolate frosting. Easy to make, these delight the little ones.
Chocolate-covered Orange Madeleines
Ingredients for 36 to 40 madeleines:
250 g of butter
250 g wheat flour
250 g of sugar
1 teaspoon powdered yeast
zest of 1 orange
melted butter q.s. (to brush)
Ingredients for the topping:
150 g cooking chocolate
1 table spoon of coconut oil
In a pan, heat the butter until it melts completely. Reserve.
In a bowl beat the eggs and sugar for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the previously sifted orange zest, flour and baking powder and mix.
Add the melted butter little by little, mixing all the time, until you get a uniform and glossy mixture.
Cover the dough with cling film and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight.
Brush the madeleine mold with melted butter and pour the dough into the mold up to 2/3 of its capacity.
Take the madeleines to the oven, preheated to 180ºC, for 10 to 15 minutes, until they are golden. Unmold and let cool completely.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate with the coconut oil in a water bath.
Dip the madeleines in the chocolate and let them rest on a sheet of parchment paper until the chocolate hardens.
