Matcha and Honey Madeleines

Last time I used lemon as main ingredient for madeleines,
Just by twisting the recipe a little bit, today I have matcha and honey madeleines -

Please see original recipe for lemon madeleines here.

Most of the ingredients and portions are the same,
But instead of lemon zest and lemon juice, I substitute with 1 teaspoon of matcha powder,
The granulated sugar amount has also been reduced a bit in exchange of 1 tablespoon of honey.

If you get to make these yummy sweet treats, what will be your variations?

  1. The subtle tinge of matcha in the greenish madeleine is so sweet. I am intrigued on how it would taste. I'll try this weekend. Matches well with tea!

    Yeah I finished it all already! Give it a try, I hope you'll enjoy this delight snack!

  3. What a gorgeous twist on the French dish - an oriental French dessert :D
