A recipe for delightful lemon lavender madeleines with a subtle flavour combination that goes perfectly with a good cup of tea. It’s kind of like spending time with Mr. Darcy, except in this version of the story, Mr. Darcy is a delicious little cake-y cookie treat.


Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/3 cup + 1tbsp White Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Zest
  • 2 tsp Lavender Buds
  • 6 tbsp Unsalted Butter, melted


  1. Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, , lemon zest, , and lavender buds until a smooth mixture is produced. Whisk the dry ingredients in until just incorporated, and then add the butter, whisking until the mixture is smooth and sticky. Transfer to a plastic bag or a pastry bag, and chill in the refrigerator for one hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat madeleine pan with butter and dust with flour, tapping out any excess. Pipe or spoon (it doesn’t effect the shape of the madeleine) the batter into the pan, filling 2/3 of each madeleine well. Bake for 8-10 minutes when using a full-sized madeleine pan (around 5 minutes if using a mini-madeleine pan), until edges are browned slightly and spring back when pressed lightly.
  4. Tap to release the madeleines. Dust with icing sugar. Serve warm.
