TWD Rewind: Fluff-Filled Chocolate Madeleines
These madeleines are everything good about those familiar lunch treats, but with a grown-up twist of delicious homemade components. They start off with a madeleine with a deep chocolate flavor. I had a little trouble with the madeleines, because they did not form the characteristic hump on the back - they were soft and tasty nonetheless. The baked madeleines are filled with a ten-year-old's dream: a jar of marshmallow fluff. The actual filling of the cakes was a little tricky - I wasn't able to get very much filling in. According to other blogs, the best way to do this is to hollow out part of the madeleine before filling. However you do it, the filled madeleines are then dipped into a bowl of dark ganache, and topped off with a squiggle of fluff. Indulgent much? Baking from My Home to Yours.
