Originally I was going to have a few more posts of savory food but the closing of Tastespotting king of caught me off guard (I couldn’t bring myself to post) and I’m still stunned and sadden. It was what compelled me to start food blogging. I hope somehow there will come something that can fill the void in the online food world.

edit 6/28… Tastespotting is back!!!!!!!!

The heat wave let up a bit so I’m able to bake again. Here’s another quick variation on madeleines.

Raspberry Lemon Madeleines

  • 1/3 cup organic shortening or butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup raspberries or 2 tbsp raspberry preserves (cut back on the sugar a bit)
  • zest of half lemon
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup almond flour/meal
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • powder sugar to dust (optional)

Cream together sugar and shortening, then incorporate one egg at a time, add lemon zest/juice and raspberries. 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. Grease pans with shortening or butter. Try to under fill the molds, and 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. Dust with powder sugar.
