  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • For the Maple Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk


Infuse the Butter:

  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the Darjeeling tea leaves and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let the mixture steep for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Strain the butter to remove the tea leaves and set aside to cool slightly.

Prepare the Batter:

How to Make Darjeeling Tea Madeleines
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a separate large bowl, beat the eggs and granulated sugar until the mixture is pale and thick (about 5 minutes).
  • Add the maple syrup, vanilla extract, and ground ginger to the egg mixture, and beat until combined.
  • Gradually fold in the flour mixture until just combined.
  • Gently fold in the cooled Darjeeling-infused butter until the batter is smooth.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (or up to overnight).

Bake the Madeleines:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Grease a madeleine pan with butter and lightly dust with flour, tapping out the excess.
  • Spoon the batter into the molds, filling each about 3/4 full.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the centers spring back when lightly touched.
  • Remove the madeleines from the pan and let them cool on a wire rack.

Prepare the Maple Glaze:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and maple syrup.
  • Add milk, a little at a time, until the glaze reaches your desired consistency.

Glaze the Madeleines:

  • Once the madeleines are completely cool, dip each one in the glaze or drizzle the glaze over the top.
  • Allow the glaze to set before serving.
