  • 1 large egg

  • Add sugar, salt and vanilla to the egg and beat until light in color and creamy.
  • Fold the flour into the egg mixture, half at a time, until combined.
  • Fold in the melted butter, working quickly as not to over mix.
  • Refrigerate the batter while the oven is preheating. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon of butter and brush it onto the madeleine mould, wipe off any excess pool of butter. Sprinkle the mould with flour, shake off the excess.
