Savory Herbed Madeleines

Makes about 25 madeleines


  • 3 ounces unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 tablespoon English Garden

  • 4 large eggs, room temperature

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup grated aged English cheddar


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a madeleine pan (or muffin tin or other cakelette pan) with cooking spray. Whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking powder and English Garden, and set aside.

  2. Using an electric mixer with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs with the sugar until the mixture is thick and light, about 4 minutes. Stir in the flour mixture on low speed or by hand and mix in the butter. Fold in the cheese.

  3. Pipe or spoon batter into prepared pan or pans, and bake about 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from pan to a rack and repeat, as needed, to use remaining batter.
