Author: A Baking Journey
1/3cup (100 gr)Melted Butter
1/4 cup (50 gr)Caster Sugar
1/2Lemon: Juice + Zest
1cup (100 gr)Almond Meal
2/3cups (110 gr)Plain Flour
1cup (100gr)Frozen Raspberries
1/2cup (120ml)Coconut Cream
1/2teaspoonAgar Agar Powder
2 DozenRaw Almonds
Melt the butter in a small bowl and set aside to cool down.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the Sugar and Eggs for a few of minutes until it has doubled in size and foamy. Pour in the cooled melted Butter and stir well.
Fold in the Almond Meal, Lemon Zest and Lemon Juice.
In a separate bowl, combine the Flour, Baking Powder and Salt. Sift it in the batter, and once completely incorporated, place in the fridge to chill for about 15 minutes.
Turn on the oven on 230’C.While the oven is heating up, spray your Madeleine Pan with Canola Oil or rub a little bit of butter in.
Pour about a tablespoon of batter in each shell. They should be about 2/3 filled.When hot, put the Madeleines in the oven and directly reduce the temperature to 170’. Bake to 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer onto a cooling rack.
Once the Madeleines have completely cooled down, start preparing the Raspberry Glaze. Put the Water, Frozen Raspberries, Lemon Juice, Cinnamon Powder and Caster Sugar in a pot, bring to a boil and let reduce into a Puree for about 10 minutes.
Set aside to cool down for 5 minutes, then transfer the Raspberry Puree in the Blender. Add the Coconut Cream and blend until completely smooth.
Pass the liquid through a sieve to remove all the seeds then pour it back into the pot. Bring to a boil.
Once the liquid is boiling, add the Agar Agar Powder. Leave on the heat for about 2 minutes - constantly whisking - until the liquid starts thickening. Remove from the heat.
Dip your Madeleines in the Raspberry Glaze and sprinkle with finely chopped Almonds. Let the Madeleines set for at least 20 minutes.
Make sure your oven is really hot before putting the Madeleines in: the heat is what will make your Madeleines Centre to rise. Don't forget to directly reduce your oven's temperature to avoid burning your madeleines.
