  • INGREDIENTS *vegan version

Our note: following the cups method for measurement units, we discovered that the volume of the cup is always the key, you don´t have to weigh the ingredients. A cup has the same volume of ingredients (liquid or dry) as a glass or a mug.

3 whole eggs /*soy yogurts (125g – small size container)
1 glass of milk /*unsweetened almond drink (any non-dairy milk)
1 glass of olive oil (not fill the entire glass, 2 cm to the edge)
1/2 zest of lemon, to taste
150gr caster sugar /*panela sugar or unrefined cane sugar
250gr wheat flour (plain or all-purpose) 
3 teaspoons of baking powder
3 teaspoons of baking soda
A pinch of salt
1 pack of standard size white cupcake papers (48 units approx.)

  • STEP BY STEP RECIPE 

1. Preheat the oven to 180 º C. Grease the white cupcake papers.
Our note: We put 2 white cupcake papers for each madeleine, just to be sure that it is going to bake them well. You can use cupcake silicone molds intead of white cupcake papers, up to you.
2. In a large bowl beat the eggs. Add the sugar and the lemon zest continue mixing until dissolved.
3. Add milk, sifted flour, baking powder, baking soda and a pinch of salt. Mix it all well until just combined.
Our note: we always sift the flour for muffins and cakes. Sifting helps to combine the flour with any dry ingredients.
4. Last, add the olive oil and stir it slowly until get a batter smoothand uniform, do not overmix.
Our note: Overmixing will cause the muffins to be tough.
5. Place the individual paper cups on a baking sheet, fill them with batter almost to the top of the paper cups. Sprinkle sugar on the top of each madeleine.
6. Bake in the middle of the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden on top.
7. Remove from the oven. Let it cold a bit and… Enjoy tasty lemon olive oil muffins.

Our note:  Keep muffins at room temperature in plastic bags. Muffins can be frozen for up to two months. 

 


YOU LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY…

The madeleine is a traditional small cake from France and Spain. The French madeleines take different shapes, while the Spanish madeleines are similar to muffins. Uncertain origin:

  • Some sources, including the New Oxford American Dictionary, say madeleines may have been named for a 19th-century pastry cook, Madeleine Paulmier, who was a cook in the 18th century for Stanisław Leszczyński, whose son-in-law, Louis XV of France, named them for her.The story goes that Louis XV called this tiny pastry “Madeleine” for the first time in 1755 in honor of his father-in-law’s cook Paulmier. Louis’ wife introduced them soon afterwards to the court in Versailles and they became loved all over France. Marcel Proust describes Madeleines as “a little shell of cake, so generously sensual beneath the piety of its stern pleating…”
  • The Larousse Gastronomique offers another conflicting version of the history of the Madeleine. The story lays the origins of the Madeleine at the feet of one Jean Avice, the “master of choux pastry,” who worked as a pastry chef for Prince Talleyrand. Avice is said to have invented the Madeleine in the 19th century by baking little cakes in aspic moulds. | wikipedia.org

  • INGREDIENTS *vegan version

200gr white refined sugar (caster sugar) /*unrefined cane sugar

1 litre of whole milk /*almond or coconut drink (any non-dairy)
75gr short grain white rice
Our note: Usually we use paella rice, but you can use as well another kind of rice. Pay attention to the boil times of the rice, it will be different depends on the kind of rice.
1 cinnamon stick
1 lemon rind
Cinnamon powder, to sprinkle (optional)

 

  • RECIPE STEP BY STEP

1. Put the milk, cinnamon slick and lemon rind in a saucepan and warm gently.
Our note: Wash and rub well the rice under the tap.
2. Wait until the mix liquid begin to boil and add the rice. Leave it to simmer, as slowly as you can, during one hour in total. Be sure to stir occasionally.
3. After 30 minutes, add the sugar. Stir often the rice with a wooden spoon to prevent sticking on the bottom of the saucepan. Then, the rice with sugar will take about 25-35 minutes.

First used in English in the middle of the 13th century, the word “rice” derives from the Old French ris, which comes from the Italian riso, in turn from the Latin orȳza, which derives from the Greek ὄρυζα (oruza). The Greek word is the source of all European words (compare Welsh reis, German Reis, Lithuanian ryžiai, Serbo-Croatian riža, Polish ryż, Dutch rijst, Hungarian rizs, Romanian orez, Spanish arroz). | wikipedia.org

“Arroz con leche” (rice with milk) is the Spanish and Hispanic American type of rice pudding. Rice pudding is a dish made from rice mixed with water or milk and other ingredients such as cinnamon and raisins. Variants are used for either desserts or dinners. When used as a dessert, it is commonly combined with a sweetener. Rice puddings are found in nearly every area of the world. Recipes can greatly vary even within a single country. The dessert can be boiled or baked. Different types of pudding vary depending on preparation methods and the selected ingredients. The following ingredients are usually found in rice puddings:

  • Rice: white rice (usually short grain, but can also be long grain, broken rice, basmati, or jasmine rice), brown rice, black rice.
  • Milk (whole milk, coconut milk, cream or evaporated).
  • Spices (cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, etc.)
    flavorings and toppings (vanilla, orange, lemon, rose water; pistachio, almond, cashew, raisin, walnut, etc.)
  • Sweetener (sugar, brown sugar, honey, sweetened condensed milk, dates, fruit or syrups). | wikipedia.org
