This is the first recipe from my new ‘Desserts’ collaboration with last year’s Australian Masterchef runner up Julia Taylor. These are very easy and quick little cakes to make which pair superbly with a cup of tea!

    Thanks for this recipe! I have a couple of questions…

    1. What size eggs do you use?
    2. Are the madeleine pans you use mini? (I suspect they are!).

    Anyhoo, have given this recipe a go and they come out of the oven in 4 minutes!

      Hi Michael I used just medium-sized eggs and yes the tin I used for the cake sin the photo was a smaller one but you could use a regular one just fine.

    Excellent! I used the larger madeleine pans and used a 25ml cookie scoop to portion. Baked for 10 minutes in a 160C fan-forced oven. Even got the requisite bump!
