Orange-Honey Madeleines

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp orange blossom water
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted, cooled, plus more for molds

Preheat oven to 400°F, and prepare madeleine pans by lightly brushing with oil or butter.  Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  Separately, beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl until pale yellow and thick.  Beat in honey, vanilla, blossom water, and orange zest.  Gently fold in dry ingredients.  Add 5 Tbsp melted butter; gently fold into batter.  Place madeleine pan on a baking sheet.  Drop 1 scant Tbsp batter into each mold.  Bake until golden and a tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 10 minutes.  Remove pan from oven, invert, and quickly knock madeleines out of pan.  Serve warm!
