Madeleines Au Chocolat/Chocolate Madeleines

The madeleine or petite madeleine is a traditional small cake from Commercy and Liverdun, two communes of the Lorraine region in northeastern France.Madeleines are very small sponge cakes with a cute shell-like shape as they are baked in special moulds with shell-shaped depressions.A cake batter is used to make these madeleines. Traditional recipes include very finely grounded nuts, usually almonds with few lemon zest, for a lemony taste or else with orange flower water, but my choice went for chocolate..I recently bought the madeleine silicon mould after a long hesitation, coz i usually buy these cuties everytime we go for shopping eventhough those store bought madeleines are loaded with sugar and butter, finally i decided myself to get a mould for this madeleines to try out some low fat versions at home as we love them very much..Sending this beauties to AWED-France guest hosted by me, event by DK and to Kid's Delight-Holiday Special hosted by Srivalli..

Chocolate Madeleines

1/3cup All purpose flour
1/3cup Sugar
3tbsp Butter (room temperature)
1tbsp Oil
2nos Eggs
1tsp Baking powder
2tsp Dark chocolate powder

Preheat the oven to 350F..Beat the eggs and sugar until they turns pale, add gradually the oil and butter beat until they turns smooth, now add the all purpose flour,baking powder, dark chocolate powder, stir until they get well mixed, dont beat vigorously..Pour a tablespoon of this batter to the silicon madeleine mould (if u r using usual madeleines mould, grease them well) arrange them in middle rack and bake for 12-15minutes..

Enjoy the warm and yummy chocolate madeleines..
