Ingredients

Pastry Cream

Madeleines

Preparation

Pastry Cream

  1. In a small pot off the heat, whisk the sugar with the cornstarch. Add the egg yolks and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the milk and vanilla. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly and scraping the bottom and sides of the pot, until the mixture thickens. Let simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Pass through a sieve to remove any lumps, if necessary.
  2. Pour the pastry cream into a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface. Let cool, then refrigerate for 2 hours or until completely chilled.
  3. When ready to use the pastry cream, mix vigorously with a spatula until creamy and smooth. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a plain tip.

Madeleines

  1. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, spices and salt.
  2. In another bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer for about 10 minutes or until the mixture triples in volume and forms a ribbon when the beater is lifted. Add the melted butter, honey and molasses. Stir in the flour mixture.
  3. Transfer the batter to an airtight container and refrigerate for 2 hours (see note).
  4. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Butter and flour a madeleine mould (see note).
  5. Fill each cavity of the mould three-quarters full with batter. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes or until slightly golden. Unmould and let cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. With a small spoon or melon baller, remove about 1/2 tsp of crumb from the centre of the rounded side of each madeleine. Fill the resulting hole with pastry cream and dust with nutmeg.

Note

The batter will keep for 3 to 4 days in the fridge.

To prevent the flour from sticking to the madeleines during baking, place the buttered and floured madeleine mould in the freezer for 30 minutes before filling with the batter.
