"Pink Madeleines for Pink Saturday"....

Friday, January 15, 2010

A Lovely "Pink Saturday" to you all! .......I came across these charming
"Rose-Water Madeleines" on the Martha Stewart website & thought they were perfect for this week's Pink Saturday post!...tiny shell-shaped spongecakes edged in the palest pink sprinkles!.......Thank you to Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound for hostessing!....And now I am off to visit all of you!......Your Friend, Heidi XO

Rose-Water Madeleines


Makes 20

  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon rose water
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sanding sugar
  • Pink powdered food color, any shade
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray


  1. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In electric mixer, beat eggs and 1/2 cup granulated sugar on medium until light, 3 to 4 minutes. Beat in vanilla. Fold in flour mixture. Fold in butter. Cover with plastic; chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oven to 425 rack in center. Spray two scallop-shell pans with cooking spray. Use spoon to fill molds three-quarters full. Bake 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 400 degrees. Bake 5 to 8 minutes more, until lightly golden. Immediately tap out madeleines onto a cooling rack. (Let madeleines cool scallop side up to avoid any creases or lines from rack.) Repeat with remaining batter. Let cool.
  4. Make rose-water syrup by combining remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar with 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar; reduce to a simmer, and cook over low heat 2 to 3 minutes to combine. Set aside to cool. When cool, stir in rose water. Set aside.
  5. Place sanding sugar in a small bowl. Use a toothpick to add small amounts of powdered food color to sanding sugar, stirring until you get desired shade of pink.

Gloomy and gray over in my neck of the woods today so all of the pinks shared this Saturday are so special and cheerful. They remind me that there are more colors than just white, gray and black.Your pinks are wonderful! My goodness - so special☺ I MUST bake those!

I hope your weekend is filled with sunshine surrounded by the laugher of those you love.

Please pray for the people of Haiti. May God bless each and every soul.
