Lavender madeleines

Updated: Feb 16, 2022

These are sure to be a hit with those of us who like lavender and chocolate. There is a subtle lavender flavor coated with smooth dark chocolate. Madeleines are the perfect size for gifting in boxes, sharing bite sized treats at gatherings and packing flavor into a single bite.

Makes 24


3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 large eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp ground lavender (1.5 tsp if you love lavender)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup of melted 70% dark chocolate (I used Hummingbird Chocolate’s untempered baking chocolate )


  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt to set aside.

  2. In another bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract for 5 minutes.

  3. Fold in the dry ingredients. Fold in the butter. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  4. Preheat oven to 400°F and place a rack in the middle. Grease and flour two madeleine pans.

  5. Remove the batter from the fridge and fill each mold 3/4 full. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, until madeleines are lightly golden brown.

  6. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and melt in the microwave or using the double boiler method, in a heat proof bowl.

  7. Dip half of the madeleine into the chocolate and allow to cool. Option to sprinkle lavender petals over the chocolate as it is cooling.

  8. Enjoy!
