  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and coat a madeleine pan with butter then sprinkle each section with flour. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Using a stand or electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until creamy. Add lemon juice and lemon zest and continue mixing.
  • Melt your stick of butter and slowly mix into your wet ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  • Fold in dry ingredients and allow for the batter to rest for about 30 minutes (I suggest putting a cloth on top).
  • Fill the molds of your madeleine pan about ¾ of the way and tap to ensure no air bubbles form.
  • Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until edges become golden brown.
  • Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar before serving.
