Apple and Cinnamon Madeleines

Baking along with the Great British Bakeoff has been fun but I have gone a bit off big cakes after all that baking now! So here are some mini madeleines with apple and cinnamon I made as a little after school treat for my children. Bite-size, they won’t affect the appetite too much when it comes to dinner time.

I’ve incorporated the flavours of autumn into these apple and cinnamon madeleines. Flavours that give you a big hug when the weather isn’t great outside.

Tiny bite-sized apple and cinnamon madeleines, so easy and quick to make for a lovely autumnal treat.

Course: Dessert
Author: bakingqueen74
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 1 medium free-range egg
  • 50 g self-raising flour
  • 50 g unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 0.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 10 g dried apple rings chopped finely
  • Icing sugar for dusting
  1. Whisk the egg and sugar together until frothy.
  2. Whisk in the melted butter, flour, cinnamon and baking powder.
  3. Fold in the chopped apple pieces.
  4. Leave the batter to stand for about ten minutes.
  5. Spoon a little of the mixture into each cell of a mini madeleine pan (I used a silicone one).
  6. Bake at 180 degrees for 8 minutes, or until cooked through and lightly golden.
  7. Dust with icing sugar to serve.

Delicious as a bite-size treat. They are best eaten on the same day.

  1. I could do with a big hug now, it’s really horrid outside. I think these super cute Madelines might just do it. Love the flavours and was intrigued as to how you were going to get the apple in.
