We've tested a few chocolate madeleine recipes, and most were not very chocolately and tended to be dry. Until we found this recipe, and all we could say is ooh la la! It was partially because we baked these in our new, deeper shell molds. But these mads were tender and bursting with chocolate flavor. Our dark chocolate dip with flaky sea salt put them over the top. These decadent French-inspired treats are a chocolate lovers dream.
Some people think madeleines are tricky to make. They are time consuming, but if you follow good recipes and don't cut corners, anyone can make them.
This recipe is slightly adapted from one from Emma Duckworth and makes 12 of the deeper shell mads or 18-ish of the standard size madeleines. As with other madeleines, these don't have much of a shelf life. They're best the first day, pretty good the second day and "if there's nothing else I'll eat them" on the third. If you bake them in the shallow, traditional pans, we recommend you eat them the first day.
If you want to extend the life of your madeleines, dip them in a glaze. We offer recipes and a how-to video here.
