Blue Cheese Madeleines

22 Jul

Blue cheese, some people love it some people hate it. I like making blue cheese sauce on steaks – utterly delicious! A block of blue cheese has been sitting in my fridge for a while, so I have decided to use it on baking this time. I found this recipe on the internet and I highly recommend it if you love blue cheese. These madeleines were savory and creamy. The blue cheese with its distinctive flavor really shone through in the madeleines. My husband isn’t a fan of blue cheese, but my 16-month old daughter loved the madeleines. She is a little cheese lover. 🙂

Blue cheese madeleines

  • 50g butter, melted
  • 150g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary and thyme leaves
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 75g blue cheese, mashed
  • 100ml buttermilk
  1. Heat the oven to 200C.
  2. Brush each mould of a non-stick madeleine tray thoroughly with a little of the melted butter. Sift the flour and baking powder together, mix in the chopped herbs, and make a well in the middle.
  3. Beat the eggs and sugar for two minutes until frothy. Beat in the blue cheese, buttermilk and remaining melted butter.
  4. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Spoon into the moulds, filling to three-quarters full, and bake for 12-15 minutes or until puffed and springy and lightly golden. Turn out onto a wire rack, and serve warm.
