I love Madeleines and always call them mini Me’s. Fabien my pastry chef friend always makes lemon Madeleines for me as a little treat.
I’m pretty pleased with this date and Earl Grey Tea Madeleine recipe as it combines ingredients I really like.
These Madeleines are light, soft, packed with flavour and look absolutely amazing. They definitely say eat me especially with the addition of the Muscavado dip.
I thought the Earl Grey tea infusion is a pretty neat idea; it does not dominate the flavour but contributes to the earthy rounded fragrance and flavour of the dates. It’s better than using water only.
These date and Earls Grey Tea Madeleines makes a cup of Earl Grey Tea in the afternoon even more special.
