Jaffa madeleines
Prep Time : 0:15 | Cook Time : 0:10 | Total Time : 0:25 | Serving : 12 person.


  • 70g (1/3 cup) caster sugar

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange rind

  • 1 egg

  • 75g (1/2 cup) plain flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 90g butter, melted, cooled

  • 1 tablespoon dark cocoa powder

  • Icing sugar mixture, to dust

  • Melted dark chocolate, to drizzle


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Grease twelve 40ml madeleine pans with melted butter. Dust with flour and shake out excess.

  • Step 2

    Use electric beaters to beat the sugar, rind and egg in a bowl for 2 minutes or until pale and creamy. Sift over flour and baking powder. Drizzle butter down the edge of the bowl into orange mixture. Use a spatula to fold until just combined.

  • Step 3

    Transfer half the batter to a separate bowl. Sift over the cocoa powder. Stir until just combined. Spoon the cocoa mixture into one end of the madeleine pans. Tilt the pan slightly and rest edge on a chopping board to allow the mixture to sit on an angle. Spoon the remaining mixture into the pan.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 8-10 minutes or until madeleines spring back when lightly pressed in the centre. Cool in the pan slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with icing sugar and drizzle with chocolate.
