Matcha Madeleines

These Matcha Madeleines are buttery and light, crispy and soft, with a subtle yet rich earthy Matcha flavor. They are perfect with a cup of tea or coffee, or perhaps a Matcha green tea Latte.

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Matcha powder
  • 3 oz unsalted butter melted & cooled
  • Extra butter and flour for the Madeleine pan
  • Powder sugar for dusting


  • Add flour and Matcha powder to a small mixing bowl and stir together with a whisk to distribute evenly.
  • In the stand mixer bowl, add the egg, egg yolk, sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and beat on medium high speed until light in color and creamy.
  • Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and fold with a spatula until completely combined. Add the melted and cooled butter, and fold until smooth. Refrigerate the batter for at least 1 hour before baking.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Brush some melted butter on each cavity of the madeleine pan and sprinkle with flour, tap the pan to cover each cavity completely with flour and shake off the excess.
  • Use a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon to divide the batter evenly among 12 cavities. Bake for 12 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool to the touch on a wire rack, flip the pan over and tap the pan until the madeleines fall out. If they don’t fall out easily, use a spatula or a butter knife to lightly pry them from the pan.
  • Let madeleines cool completely on the wire rack and dust with powder sugar before serving.
