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.
So quick and easy to make, and you only need a small amount of ingredients to make a small batch.
- 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
- Whisk the egg and sugar together until frothy.
- Whisk in the melted butter, flour, cinnamon and baking powder.
- Fold in the chopped apple pieces.
- Leave the batter to stand for about ten minutes.
- Spoon a little of the mixture into each cell of a mini madeleine pan (I used a silicone one).
- Bake at 180 degrees for 8 minutes, or until cooked through and lightly golden.
- Dust with icing sugar to serve.
Delicious as a bite-size treat. They are best eaten on the same day.
