Blueberry Lavender Honey Madelines

Okay I'll admit it, this recipe is fused from a bunch of Madeline recipes, including one for "Madelines with Lavender Honey" that appeared in Bon Appetit earlier this year. Still, I felt like I could play with it and really tease out some new ingredients I've been playing with - namely, almond flour and culinary lavender. So - here goes.

8 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
4 Large Egg Whites
1 1/3 Cup Powdered Sugar

6 Tablespoons Flour

1/4 Cup Almond Flour

4 Teaspoons Lavender Honey

2 Large Pinches Cooking Lavender
1 Pint Blueberries

Cooking Spray

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray some no-cal butter-free whatshamacallit spray on a Madeline pan.

Melt the butter over a stove until golden - a few minutes. It'll start getting bubbly and then you'll pull it off the stove.

Beat all that stuff in a bowl (I used my mixer this time) - egg whites, flour, sugar, almond flour, butter. Melt the honey and then pour that in as well. Add the blueberries last, and just stir for a second. It is possible that I used too many blueberries. But I really like them, so I don't mind that the juice dripped through the Madelines.

Spoon into the pan, but into the oven for fifteen minutes. If you really spooned in a lot, you might want to shoot for 16 or 17 minutes. Check the biggest Madeline with a toothpick towards the end of the time if you're not sure.
My pan only makes 12, which is probably good when I'm making stuff up a little, so the second round I used less of the mixture and tried to spread the blueberries out a bit so that they were more even. The recipe makes about 24 total.

They taste AMAZING. The extra pinch of lavender really kicked it up and infused the whole Madeline. Enjoy!!

    p.s. I have always been of the opinion that the more blueberries in life, the better and cooking lavender sounds divine! Photos are brilliant too... X

  3. Ha ha! I get it - lavender and a picture of the Madeline metro station in Paris in the background. Someone is missing Paris. :)
