best madeliene bump yet

Best madeliene bump yet, originally uploaded by flanmela.

i've been sort of obsessed with making madelienes lately -- i've made all sorts: traditional, chestnut flour, almond flour. i've made them using a traditional genoise base, heavy butter batter w/ no leavening agent, and a cheater version with baking powder added.

these are my chocolate madelienes and, of all of the ones i've made, they have the best "bump". the recipe comes from my favorite resource -- king arthur's flour company. there's no leavening agent -- just hyper-whipped eggs, beaten with the sugar until they're light yellow and ribbony.

they are delicious. just ask my kids.
