As we are still celebrating festive season, let me share another christmas treats which I gave to my colleagues this year. If you have been following me since beginning, you may remember Lemon Curd Melting Moments from last year christmas treats. This year I was thinking to make something different and I had so many christmas ideas but at the end, I ended up with something simple, yet very christmassy. Well, simple is more. I have to admit that I love sprinkles, they really do wonders and gives a wow factor on the final product.
I have the madeleine tray since mid this year. As I have been busy doing cake and cupcake orders, I just didn't have time to use them. I used the butterscotch madeleine recipe from Bills Basic by Bill Granger. They are very simple to make and turned out very light and spongy. Once they are cooled, I dipped each madeleine into White Candy Melts and colourful christmas sprinkle and leave them on the baking tray until dry. If you don't have white candy melts available, you can also use white chocolate compound and put them in the microwave for few seconds until they are melted.
I had a really fun time making this christmas madeleine. It was always a great feeling when receiving great feedback from colleagues. Once again, Merry Christmas and hope you have a wonderful time with your loved ones..

100g Unsalted Butter
2 tablespoon Golden Syrup
60g Caster Sugar
75g Plain Flour, Sifted
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1. Preheat the oven to 170° C. Grease a madeleine tray and dust with flour, shaking off the excess.
2. Melt the butter in a small pan. Remove from the heat, stir in the syrup and leave to cool.
3. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, sugar and a pinch of salt until pale and fluffy. Add the flour, baking powder and syrup mixture and fold everything together.
4. Spoon the mixture into the madeleine tray and bake for about 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Christmas Sprinkle or other colourful Sprinkles
White Candy Melt from Wilton or White Chocolate Compound
Melt the candy Melt or White Chocolate Compound on the microwave for few seconds until melt but not overly burn. Dipped each madeleine into the melted white chocolate and then into the sprinkles. Leave them on the baking tray to dry. Once they are ready, put them in the bag and wrap them with christmas ribbon and lovely christmas cards made by my hubby.
Ta-da.. There they are.. Christmas Butterscotch Madeleine...
