  • Yield: 25 madeleines


4 eggs

120 grams white sugar

200 grams white wheat flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

⅔ cup unsalted butter

¼ cup liquid honey

2 tablespoons TWG Tea ‘Tea Party’ tea leaves


1. In a large bowl, stir sugar and eggs until the mixture is thick. Sift wheat flour and baking powder through a fine sieve and mix them gradually while whisking; continue until well blended.

2. Place unsalted butter and TWG Tea Tea Party tea leaves in a saucepan over medium low heat and keep stirring it using a wooden spoon. Once the butter has melted let it come to a boil.

3. Continue to cook the butter until it looks clear, and has a light brown and nutty colour. Remove from heat and immediately put through a strainer to remove the tea leaves. Let cool to room temperature before folding into the mixture.

4. In a small saucepan, heat the honey until it begins to simmer; do not boil. Remove from heat and pour into the mixture.

5. Butter the madeleine moulds, or choose silicone moulds. Using a piping bag with about a ½-inch round tip, pipe the batter to fill each mould almost to the rim. Leave to rest for one night in the refrigerator.

6. Preheat the oven to 320°F and bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until  the madeleines spring back when touched lightly in centre and edges are golden.
