I have an undying love for madeleines... banana bread.
So what's a girl to do when she has an overripe banana that's hanging out in the kitchen?
Why not make Banana Bread Madeleines?
These little bite size cakes are so easy and quick to make, you might wanna whip some right now.
Banana Bread Madeleines
makes about 24
2 Eggs, room temperature
2/3 cups packed Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 cup of AP Flour
1 tsp ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 cup of melted unsalted Butter
1/4 cup of mashed ripe Banana
Preheat oven to 375F. Grease 2 madeleine pans with baking spray (or good ol' fashion butter & flour; tap out any excess.)
Whisk together eggs & brown sugar until mixture is thickened and sugar is dissolve, about 4-5 minutes (use medium speed if using electric mixer); Add Vanilla Extract, mix for 1 minute. Add Melted Butter and mix until combine.
Whisk in Flour, Cinnamon, Salt & Baking Soda until combine. Add Banana and mix until blended in.
Spoon batter into pans, fill each mold about 3/4 full.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes, until you see the classic Madeleine bump. Do a cake test on the bump with toothpick; if it comes out clean, then they are done :)
Immediately turn out the madeleines on to a cooling rack. You may dust with powdered sugar if desire.
I added 1/3 cup of Chocolate Chips to my batter (you can add them during the banana stage)... Banana & Chocolate are like the best combo ever!
You can make it Gluten Free by using any All Purpose Gluten Free flour mix in stores. I did once and it came out sooo good. Honestly I think better than regular flour! #truestory
