How To Make Madeleine Hot Air Balloons:
For The Madeleines:
- 70g melted unsalted butter (plus 20g extra melted for greasing)
- 100g caster sugar
- 2 medium eggs, beaten
- 125g plain flour + a little extra for dusting
- 1tsp baking powder
- 2tbsp Belvoir Elderflower & Rose Cordial
For The Icing:
- 150g icing sugar
- 1 tbsp Belvoir Elderflower Cordial
- a squeeze of lemon juice
- food colouring
- cocktail sticks
- paper piping bags
- 12 flapjack squares for ‘the baskets’
Madeleine Hot Air Balloons Method:
How To Make:
- Whisk the eggs and sugar until they are light and fluffy, (the whisk should leave a ribbon trail on the surface of the mixture when you lift it up). It needs to almost double in volume – which will take about 6 minutes in a stand mixer.
- Lightly fold in all the other ingredients. Leave to stand for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, brush the Madeleine Tray with melted butter, leave it to set, and then dust with a little flour, knocking out any excess.
- Preheat the oven to 200c/Fan 180c/Gas Mark 6.
- Gently spoon the madeleine batter into the moulds and bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden.
- Allow to cook in the tin for 5 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Making The Madeleine Hot Air Balloons Icing:
How To Make;
- Mix the icing sugar with the cordial and lemon juice until you have a smooth pipeable icing. Divide into 4 and make them different colours with food colouring. Spoon into small piping bags and cut off the tips so they pipe nice and thin.
- Pipe the icing over the madeleines to create patterns.
- Use a couple of cocktail sticks inserted into the base of each balloon and skewer them into flapjack squares to make them into hot air balloons. Last but not least, enjoy.
