Rose Honey Almond Madeleines

November 15, 2010 at 7:05 pm 14 comments

It’s been a while since I tried something new with madeleines. I bought organic rose powder and this was the first thing I tried out with it. I also added rose water for more rose impact. You could probably do it with rose water alone. The honey and almond are at the forefront while the rose leaves a floral aftertaste that harmonizes flavors and counters the sweetness. Short of a rose syrup (for post baking soak) the floral flavors will always be in the back seat.
Rose Honey Almond Madeleines
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil or butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp rose powder (optional)
  • 1 tbsp rose water
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 3/4 cup almond flour/meal
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt

Cream together sugar and shortening, then incorporate one egg at a time till completely blended. Add in flavorings (rose powder, rose water, honey, almond extract) and almond flour, mix thoroughly. Then add flour and baking powder with the pinch of salt, mix till smooth. Preheat oven to 350º. Grease pans throughly. Try to under fill the molds, and you can get make 2 batches of the full sized madeleine pans or about 3 batches of minis. Bake for 18 min (for full sized pans, 13-15 for minis) till the top starts to turn golden brown. Cool for 5min before popping them out.

    I never came across in using rose powder in baked items, I can imagine the taste already, seems to be delicious. The only time I encountered rose in a food item is a refreshment drink in Malaysia I guess its called Rose Bandung.

    By the way your post is featured in Foodpess.

    What exactly does rose powder add to the recipe?

    • 8. eatyet  |  December 15, 2010 at 6:37 pm

      I would describe it as an astringency with a subtle floral aroma.

    Great recipe. I’ve only ever made “plain” madeleines. I’m sure the rose water added such a lovely scent to yours, I’ll definitely give them a shot.
