I was playing around with some different madeleine recipes. There's a well known one that was created by Daniel Boulud. I used that one and tweaked the flavoring in a few different ways. This is one of the resulting concoctions. Matcha is kinda subtle, and it works well here. I upped the amount of matcha in the recipe, because I think it was too light. Let me know if you think it works.

What you will need

3/4 cup AP flour

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp matcha

1 tsp baking powder

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1 tbsp butter

How to cook

1

Combine first 4 ingredients

Get the flour, salt, matcha and baking powder in a bowl together and mix them up. This recipe is based on my basic madeleine recipe, which you can find here.

2

Whisk together eggs and sugar

Combine eggs and sugar. Whisk well.

3

Whisk melted butter into eggs

Melt the butter and whisk it into the egg and sugar mixture in a stream.

4

Whisk dry into wet

Now, whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix well.

5

Transfer to a pastry bag

Pour the batter into a pastry bag (or a ziplock bag in a pinch). Seal it up and chill the batter for at least an hour.

6

Coat pan with grease and flour

Coat your madeleine mold with nonstick grease spray, followed by a dusting of flour. Madeleines like to stick to the baking pan, so we're doing double duty to make sure that doesn't happen.

7

Preheat oven to 400F

Fire it up. You know, these cookies can be temperamental, so the oven temp can be crucial. And a lot of ovens are not calibrated well. I really like to keep a hanging oven thermometer in my oven to verify the temperature.

8

Bake for 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.
