I love Earl Grey tea, and decided to add it to my basic madeleine recipe. You can dust the madeleines with some powdered sugar before serving.

  • Combine eggs and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium-high speed until fluffy and doubled in volume, about 5 minutes. Fold in the flour mixture with a silicone spatula, 1/4 at a time, until batter is just combined.

  • Add 1/2 cup melted butter, Earl Grey tea, and vanilla bean paste; mix until combined. Refrigerate batter for 2 to 24 hours.

  • Prepare 2 madeleine pans by greasing each with 1 teaspoon melted butter and dusting with 1 teaspoon flour. Tap out excess flour. Refrigerate the prepared pans before baking.

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • Pipe or spoon some of the cold batter into the prepared pans. Fill the molds no more than 3/4 full. Transfer pans to the oven and reduce the temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Bake until madeleines puff up and edges start to color, 6 to 9 minutes. Cool madeleines on a wire rack or paper towels. Wipe out the pans and repeat to finish the batter.

Cook's Notes:

Scrape seeds from 1 vanilla bean instead of using vanilla bean paste, if desired.

Consider serving with a dab of buttercream frosting to add sweetness. Beat powdered sugar, whipping cream, soft butter, and a little vanilla bean paste together to make buttercream.
