How To Make Madeleine Hot Air Balloons. Madeleine Hot Air Balloons, how sweet!?
To celebrate the launch this summer of their very own hot air balloon, Belvoir asked Lisa Faulkner to make these rather fetching balloons influenced Madeleines.
Delicious with a silky-smooth flavour, the pleasure is intensified by a glass of fragrant Belvoir Elderflower & Rose Cordial.
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
paper piping bags
12 flapjack squares for ‘the baskets’
How To Make Madeleine Hot Air Balloons:
1. 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.
2. Lightly fold in all the other ingredients. Leave to stand for 20 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, brush the madeleine tray with melted butter, leave to set, then dust with a little flour, knocking out any excess.
4. Preheat the oven to 200c/Fan 180c/Gas Mark 6.
5. Gently spoon the madeleine batter into the moulds and bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden.
6. Allow to cook in the tin for 5 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Making The Icing:
7. 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.
8. Pipe the icing over the madeleines to create patterns.
9. Use a couple of cocktail sticks inserted into the base of each balloon and skewer into flapjack squares to make them into hot air balloons.
