I will eventually get around editing (photos) and writing up more soon (I have a backlog). But here’s another quick madeleine recipe for the time being.

It’s also my addition to Mansi’s Monthly Mingle over at

 Orange Hazelnut Madeleines

  • 1/3 cup organic shortening or butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • zest of 1 orange or 1 1/2 tsp orange oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Cream together sugar and shortening, then incorporate one egg at a time. Mix till completely blended. Add in hazelnut flour, orange zest (or orange oil), vanilla and mix thoroughly. Then add flour and baking powder, mix briefly till smooth. Preheat oven to 350º. Grease pans with shortening or butter (or cooking spray). You can get make 2 batches of the full sized pans or about 3 batches of minis. Bake for 18-20min (for full sized pans, 13-15 for minis) when the edges just turn golden brown. Cool for 5min before popping them out.

If you have some kind of hazelnut extract or liquor (1-2 tsp) you can leave off the vanilla and really up the hazelnut flavor.

    These look very beautiful and extremely tasty! I love madeleines, have baked them often, but never with hazelnut:) thanks for the idea!

    btw Lina, you could send these in for the Monthly MIngle event I’m hosting this month; they would be a great addition to the roundup!
