Matcha Madeleines to Pimp your Festive Season

Hi all! We’re finally in December, looks like time flies, even for those on confinement like us. Lately, I’ve been cooking and baking quite a bit, so I thought I’d share with you some of my recipes. I will post short TikToks for those interested, you can see them here (among other things). In the meantime, let’s cook matcha madeleines. I found this recipe as I was looking for something sweet and was amazed that others prepared some before me! As far as I know, madeleines are very French (and delicious), and it turns out they taste just great with some more matcha. It’s also a very easy recipe, that you can make in very little time.

And without further ado, let’s just into this week’s recipe. It isn’t an Asian recipe so to speak, but it has matcha and some of you guys asked for the recipe, so I thought it belonged in this blog after all. Here’s my version of a classic French recipe, with a Japanese twist: madeleines, with matcha. These will do supberly for tea time, and are very to make, as you will see.

Matcha madeleines: Ingredients you will need

I measure everything in grams, but will put equivalents in cups, for those who do not lean that way. My measures might be more accurate in grams, though.

  • 125 grams (1/2 cup) of melted butter
  • 150 grams (1 cup) of flour
  • 150 grams (3/4 cup) of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of matcha powder

Material required

  • a madeleine pan (you can find one here)
  • a whisk
  • an oven
  • a mixing ball
  • That’s it

Step by step

As far as I’m concerned, it’s a super easy recipe. Here are the steps you’ll need:

  1. Preheat the oven at 180°C (thermostat 6-7)
  2. Mix the sugar, salt, and eggs until the mixture becomes whiter. While it doesn’t need to be fully white, it should definitely change colors. You can use an electric whisk if you’ve got one.
  3. Add the butter to the mix and stir well.
  4. You can now add the flour little by little, so that the mix stays homogenous.
  5. Add the matcha, and stir so it becomes a green paste.
  6. Butter the madeleine pan, and put the mix in there, without filling the holes completely.
  7. Put in the oven 8-10 minutes. If the first batch comes out too dry, reduce the time of cooking.
  8. That’s it !

Here’s a little summary of the recipe for your eyes only:
