Coconut Madeleines

5.5 hours...
That was the amount of time I put in for my school project meeting today,
Yes, on a Sunday night,
Surprisingly I still have some energy left to update my blog,
What can I say, food makes me happy!

Coconut Madeleines -
(I can never spell "madeleines right, had to Google it to make sure I got the right word!)

Ingredients (for 12)?

1 cup of all purpose flour
2/3 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 cup of packed brown sugar
1/3 cup of coconut milk powder
1/4 cup of sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup of melted butter (room temperature)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Small pinch of salt


Sidetrack, this is my new found love, Mr. Blendi! -

It was on sale for $199.99,
I was happy like a bird when the price popped up on my computer screen,
After this heavy red thing arrived at my kitchen,
No more hard larbor blending work, hurray!

Anyways, back to the recipe,
Here's the post I had before for classic madeleines.
The steps are almost the same,
Just remember these basic baking rules:
1. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl
2. Mix all the wet ingredients in the other bowl
3. Gradually pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients

That should do the trick,
For this particular recipe, mix in shredded coconut with the dry ingredient first,
I prefer them to be coated with the flour prior baking,
Sometimes, most of the times, it prevents the last added ingredients from sinking to the bottom during the baking process.

Simple, easy, and elegant,
What a way to indulge my little free time after group meeting huh?

    I've been wanting to get one, so happy it was on sale!

  3. Those are really cute! I've been wanting to get a madeleine pan for a while now but somehow it always ends up on the backburner for something else. Hope the school project went well.

    Thank you so much,
    Yeah I think you can also use mini muffin pan for madeleine recipes, just the shape is not as "elegant" though!

  5. I just had my first coconut Madelenes last week actually. It's from now on my favorite cookie! And I looove KitchenAid.
