The flavor of happiness

A while ago we enjoyed a dinner at ‘Graanmarkt 13’ in Antwerp, the restaurant of Seppe Nobels.

We had a delicious evening which we ended with a coffee and delicious ‘madeleines’. The recipe was a little gift.

Although my adapted cake form is still somewhere in boxes, waiting to be unpacked after finishing the renovations, I decided to prepare the recipe for 15 cookies in 1 spring form.

Melt 150 grams of butter ( yes, a lot!) on low heat until it reaches a soft hazelnut color. Allow to rest it at room temperature.

Beat 3 eggs. Mix with 160 grams of sugar, 20 grams of honey, the zeste of 1 lime and 1 scooped vanilla stick until the mixture is light and airy.

Add 100 grams of flour, 50 grams of almond powder and 5 grams of baking powder. Keep stirring while adding the butter.

Store the mixture in the fridge.

Butter your cake form or use baking paper. Spread the mixture. For madeleines 10 mins of baking time in a preheated oven at 180° in enough. For the all in one version, start with 30 mins. Check, and continue if necessary.

Best coffee biscuits ever😍
