Gluten Free Madeleines

Gluten Free Madeleines
I love "Madeleines" and I wanted to make some for a while, always putting it on the backburner because I don't have "Madeleine" pans...... but so what? Finally I decided to make them anyway and just use mini cake pans. I set out to find a basic recipe and adapted it to make it gluten free, to do so I replace regular flour with Ener G Sweet Rice Flour....... and it worked like a charm!

These little "Madeleines" are delicate, fluffy and delicious! Just have them plain, with a little chocolate drizzle or just some powdered sugar........ YUM!

Here is what you need to make these "melt-in-your-mouth" buttery bites:

150 g sugar
3 eggs
150 g butter
150 g sweet rice flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
1 tsp almond flavor

Melt the butter in a microwave safe dish or in a sauce pan and set aside.Sift the rice flour with the baking powder and set aside as well. In a bowl mix the sugar, almond essence and the eggs until light and very creamy, continue mixing and add in the butter in a stream until fully incorporated. Once you have done that, keep your mixer on and little by little add the rice flour mixture to the batter until all is well combined.

Fill in prepared "Madeleine" or other shallow baking pan and bake in a preheated 400 F/ 200 C oven for about 16 to 20 minutes (until golden) remove from the oven and cool.

There you have it delicious, buttery, delicate and gluten free "Madeleines"!

You can find the groceries and molds I used for these delectable gems in my "Stuff to Buy" section!
