Feeling French

I love making madeleines, there is something very peaceful about folding the batter and piping it into the delicate molds. I used to make these cookies a lot, but haven’t since I became gluten free so this was my first attempt making them with the gluten free modification. I even got adventurous and split the batter into two, making half chocolate and half vanilla. Now that I found a good gluten free base for these cookies, I will start to experiment more with different spices, extracts, etc.

Recipe tested and approved! Hope you enjoy.


2 Cups Gluten Free AP Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

¾ tsp Sea Salt

6 Eggs, room temperature

1 Cup Sugar

2 TBS Brown Sugar

2 Sticks Unsalted Butter, melted + more to coat the pans

1 TBS plus 1 tsp Honey

¾ tsp Vanilla

Powdered Sugar, for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whisk together the sugars and butter until light and fluffy.
  4. Sift the flour mixture into the sugar and egg mixture, ½ at a time, folding to combine.
  5. Fold in the butter in two rounds. Then fold in the vanilla and honey.
  6. Option here to split the batter into two and add 4 TBS Cocoa Powder to one half of the mixture for chocolate madeleines. You may also add lemon zest to the other half if you want lemon madeleines. 
  7. Generously butter madeleine pans using a pastry brush.
  8. Using a pastry bag, pipe batter into the molds. Bake for 10 minutes, or 6 minutes if using a mini madeleine pan.
  9. Immediately shake baked madeleines out and dust with powdered sugar.
  10. Wash and rebutter molds. Repeat with remaining batter.
