Filipino Ube Madeleines Recipe


  1. Melt butter over low-medium heat whisking occassionally to make sure that it doesn’t burn. Cool to room temperature.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl; set aside.
  3. Put eggs, egg yolks, granulated sugar, ube flavor and use electric mixer. Mix on medium-high speed until pale and thickened, about 5 minutes. It should also have at least doubled in size.
  4. Mix in butter.
  5. Using a spatula, fold flour mixture into egg mixture. Let rest 30 minutes or until firm.
  6. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two madeleine pans. Dust with some flour and tap pans upside down to remove excess flour; set aside.
  7. After the dough has rested for about 30 minutes, pour batter into greased pans, filling the molds 3/4 full.
  8. Bake cookies, until edges are crisp and golden, 7 to 8 minutes for small pans and 10 to 11 for large pans. Let cookies cool slightly in pans on wire racks. Invert, and unmold.
  9. Dust with confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
  10. Make sure it’s light and airy by not overmixing while folding in the flour.
