Red Velvet Madeleines

Ingredients to make Red Velvet Madeleines

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons red food coloring
  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • powdered sugar (optional)

How to make Red Velvet Madeleines

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine the sugar, eggs, yolks and vanilla in a mixing bowl and beat at medium-high speed with an electric mixer for 5 minutes or until thick and pale. Add butter and food coloring to the mixture, and beat until well-blended.
  3. Whisk together the cake flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt, and then fold in the egg mixture. Spoon the batter into 2 well-greased shiny madeleine pans, filling three-fourths full (about 1 tablespoon per madeleine).
  4. Bake at 400° for 8 to 10 minutes or until the centers of the madeleines spring back when lightly pressed. Immediately remove madeleines from the pan to prevent sticking and cool on a wire rack.
  5. Cool completely (about 20 minutes) and dust with powdered sugar just before serving, if desired.

My Tip:

If you only have one madeleine pan, bake them in batches; placing the batter in the refrigerator between batches.
