Back in the day, if you got yourself a poppy seed muffin, It was an unspoken rule that there would also be almond extract in the batter. At some point, the standard changed to lemon poppy seed. I believe that the almond poppy seed muffin is far superior to the lemon poppy seed, so I'm extremely bitter about this transition. In honor of my bitterness, I created these almond poppy seed madeleines. Fine, take my muffins, but I'm keeping the madeleines.

How to cook

1

Get your ingredients together

We'll be following my recipe for basic madeleines up through step 6. The only change will be that we will be adding poppy seeds and almond extract to the batter.

2

Combine dry ingredients

Get the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder in a bowl together and mix them up.

3

Combine wet ingredients

In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, sugar and honey. Melt the butter and whisk that in as well.

4

Add dry to wet and add flavoring

Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Whisk in the poppy seeds and almond extract here as well.

5

Put it in a pastry bag

Put the batter in a pastry bag or a ziplock bag. Seal it up, then put it in the fridge to chill for at least an hour.

6

Grease and flour baking mold

Coat your madeleine mold with some nonstick spray and a light dusting of flour. Madeleines like to stick, and we want to try and avoid that.

Fill molds

Snip off the tip of your pastry bag and pump a little batter into each mold. You want to fill these to about 2/3 full.

Fire it up.

Bake for about 10 minutes

They cook fast, so keep an eye on them. I like to do 5 minutes, rotate, and do 5 more minutes. you want them to be just barely cooked through for maximum fluffiness.
