Caramel Banana Madeleines

caramel banana madeleine

Amalgamation of couple of recipes and the love for Bananas!
I have been experimenting and tweaking to perfect the recipe.

And not to mention the infatuation for these little French butter cakes, Madeleines!

Tasteful, petit, can be made in advance and easy to make..

Base Ingredients

100g Plain Flour
¾ tsp or 3g baking powder
30g caster sugar
20g golden caster sugar
70g Unsalted butter
30g Salted butter                  (All butters melted and Cooled)
110g eggs (Approx. 2 medium eggs)

Caramel Sauce (Double it and use half for decoration)

20g Granulated Sugar
20ml Cream
5g Liquid glucose
5ml Water

1) Sugar + LG + Water in a good saucepan on medium heat
2) Let it bubble and turn quite brown (patience!)
3) Remove from heat, add in Cream slowly, stir.
4) Cool slightly before use. Reheat as necessary (for decoration)
I actually do not mind the chunks of caramel (when it cools down), I take it as a pleasing rustic feature of the recipe 🙂

(Makes approx.. 25-30g of Caramel Sauce)
