Mad for madeleines, red bean and green tea

April 8, 2008 at 3:37 pm 3 comments

With eggs in hand I can finally make the madeleines that I wanted. When I bought the red bean flour I wanted to make red bean pound cake but I preferred to mix red bean paste into the batter for a marbled effect. Later on I was contemplating cookies but still didn’t think the powder form was the way to go. Then I got the madeleine pan and it was perfect. Red bean goes best with green tea, so I divided up the batter half red bean flavor and half green tea. The red bean didn’t get the color I had hoped for, it’s probably best to use smooth red bean paste in the future, or use more red bean flour, or maybe cook it first. Color aside (they were still a pretty pink) they were so good, perfectly fluffy and crispy and light. It makes about three batches of 24 minis (if I had filled it better, they expand a lot). I’m buying more madeleine pans now.

Green Tea / Red Bean Madeleines

  • 1/3 cup organic shortening or butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup almond flour/meal
  • 3/4 flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp red bean flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp green tea powder or matcha

batter was fluffy like frosting

Cream together sugar and shortening, then incorporate one egg at a time. Mix till completely blended. Add in almond flour and mix thoroughly. Then add flour and baking powder, mix briefly till smooth. Preheat oven to 350º. Separate half of the batter into a new bowl; add green tea powder to one bowl and red bean flour to the other. With spatula or spoon, fold green tea/red bean into batter. Grease pan, and pray for minimal sticking. Try to under fill the molds (kind of hard with the thick batter), they will expand. Bake for 13-15min (for mini pans) when the edges just turn light brown. Cool for 5min before popping them out.
