Gluten-free Madelines so simple to make you’ll be able to whip a batch in close to no time. Zesty with a delicious crunch of chopped macadamias. Perfect treat for Mum this Mother’s Day. They are also dairy-free, low sugar / sugar-free and almost paleo.
As the case may be with many things nowadays, I had my first fluffy and warm Madeline cookie not in Paris, or France for that matter, but here in Australia. It was on a cold winter’s morning that we arrived at Cumulus Inc in Melbourne, famished, having missed our dinner reservation the night before because I managed to fall asleep.
The queue for a table was long, but the wait sweetened with steaming mugs of flat whites and a couple of zesty Madelines, fresh from the oven. The infatuation remained, way past the couple of minutes it took to enjoy every bite, down to the very last crumb.
And so, this Mother’s Day I’m treating myself to a batch of these freshly-baked gluten-free Madelines (most recipes call for flour and butter – this use doesn’t use either). And I think you should, too. Assisted perhaps by your little ones and your significant other – share to your Facebook to leave them a hint.
The cardamom and vanilla custard is an optional extra, and of course you can make it dairy- and egg-free from this recipe using a pinch of ground cardamom instead. Either way it’s a luxurious addition to an already special treat.
