We usually eat them as they are but every once in a while, I like to think of a recipe that would be great with this citrus flavour, such as this clementine yogurt cake I made a good while back.
I have been making a lot of madeleines lately and I thought that since people sometimes add lemon to the recipe, why not give it a try with some clementine flavour.
I only added the zest and juice of half a clementine in this recipe and also grated a third of a tonka bean to add to the batter (I know tonka beans cannot be found everywhere so just skip this part if you don't have any). The flavour combination is delicate and not overwhelming. And the result is a perfectly delicious madeleine, ideal as a little cake to have with tea or coffee after a meal.
Do you like making madeleines?
Are you more of a purist (no lemon, no vanilla or honey) or do you like adding flavours to it?
