How to make chocolate and almond madeleines

  • Whisk the eggs and sugar together until they have doubled in size and are light and fluffy.
  • Slowly fold in the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
  • Add the almond extract and chocolate.

  • When mixed cover the bowl and put in the fridge for at least 30 mins
  • Put a spoon of the mixture into a well buttered Madeleine tray so that each mould is about two thirds full.
  • Bake in the oven at 190C for around 7 minutes until risen.
  • Leave the chocolate and almonds madeleines to cool in the tin for 5 minutes and then turn out.
