Vegan Recipe: Lavender Meyer Lemon Madeleines

Lavender Meyer Lemon Madeleines

Valentine’s Day Gift

Organic Culinary Lavender

It’s almost Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re spending it with your sweetie, celebrating with your friends, or planning the perfect 'Me Day' – nothing says Love like making a lavender-infused gift with your own creative hands.

Madeleines, the Classic French Tea Cakes are baked in special molds that give them a delicate shell shape. The name 'Madeleine' was given to these delightful tea cakes by Louis XV to  honor his father in law's cook, Madeleine Paulmier. 

Madeleines infused with organic culinary lavender and Meyer lemon are delicious, easy to make and they’ll make a beautiful Valentine’s Day gift too. Delightful by themselves, but even better when dunked into coffee, espresso or dessert wine.  

Culinary Lavender Tip: always use high grade organic culinary lavender.

Ingredients: Makes 12 Madeleines

1/2 cup pastry flour
2 Tbsp. almond flour 
1/3 cup unsalted vegan butter 
1 Tsp. fresh Meyer lemon juice
1 Tsp. Meyer lemon zest
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tsp. organic culinary lavender (finely chopped)
1/3 cup almond milk

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Butter and flour the madeleines mold.
3. Melt butter and set aside to cool at room temperature.
4. In a bowl with an electric mixer at high speed beat pastry flour, almond flour, sugar, almond milk, lemon juice and melted butter until the mixture is creamy. 
5. Add lemon zest and lavender flowers and beat for additional one minute.
6. Place 1 Tbsp. of the batter into each mold.
