Christmas Enigma: Indulging in the Splendor of Hazelnut-Infused Madeleine Elegance

Dive into the mystique of a yuletide delicacy with our Hazelnut-Flavored Madeleine, a confectionery marvel that transcends the ordinary. Crafted with precision and finesse, this recipe promises a symphony of flavors that tantalize the taste buds.

Ingredients for this Gastronomic Sonata:


- Whole egg … 1 piece

- Cane sugar … 45g

- Condensed milk … 6g

- Hazelnut powder … 15g

- A pinch of salt

- Soft flour … 45g

- Baking powder … Approximately 1/8th grade

- Milk … 20g

- Unsalted butter … 45g


- Gently coat the mold with butter.

- Melt the butter, maintaining it at approximately 50℃. (Alternatively, immerse it in hot water.)

- Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Symphony Composition:

1. In a bowl, vigorously beat room temperature whole eggs, introducing the cane sugar and harmoniously amalgamating with a whisk.

2. Sift the hazelnut powder, add the condensed milk and a hint of salt, orchestrating a seamless fusion with the whisk.

3. Elevate the milk to near body temperature, incorporating it with finesse. Sift in the flour and baking powder, executing a delicate blend.

4. Introduce the melted butter at around 50℃, expertly intertwining it into the symphony.

5. Pour the amalgamated composition into the mold and grace the oven at 180℃ for an approximate duration of 18 minutes.

  •  For any remaining batter, fashion it into a madeleine cup, embellishing it with almonds, and usher it into the oven's embrace.

6. Once the confection has danced within the oven's warmth, delicately place it upon a wire rack to experience a gentle cooling before liberating it from the mold.

7. Optionally, embark upon a further artistic endeavor by adorning the cake with icing. This ethereal concoction can be achieved by adding lemon juice to sifted powdered sugar, ensuring a harmonious consistency that gracefully adorns the creation.

Immerse yourself in the enigma of hazelnut-infused madeleine elegance, where each bite unravels a tantalizing tale of festive indulgence.
