“Madeleines traditionally have a shell shape. But you can mould them as muffins or cake pops if you want. Luckily, shape does not necessarily define how food tastes like. This mini sponge cake originating from France is the perfect breakfast to go along a hot drink during winter time. This Lemon and poppy seeds madeleines recipe is a twist by Gordon Ramsay.“

Food Gift Recipe: Lemon & Poppy seed Madeleines
- 3 eggs
- 80g sugar
- 80g self raising flour
- 75g butter
- 1tbs poppy seeds
- zest of a lemon
- In a pan, gently melt the butter.
- In a large bowl, crack the eggs and whisk together with the sugar, until all sugar is incorporated and the mixture become thick and light in colour.
- Sift in the flour into the egg mixture, and fold in the poppy seeds. Add lemon zest and mix everything together.
- When the melted butter is slightly cooled, pour into the mixture and gently combine to make a batter.
- Lightly line a muffin tray (or any tin/silicon mould you are using) with butter and flour, then pour the batter (you don’t want it too thick). If you’re using the traditional madeleine tray, pour in to the top.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from tray and serve warm.
