Honey Mango Madeleines: a Guest Post at a Culinary Journey with Chef Dennis


I’m very happy to announce that today, I am a guest at one of my favorite blogs, A Culinary Journey with Chef Dennis.  Chef Dennis and I started blogging at around the same time but I wouldn’t hesitate to say that in terms of popularity, he has eclipsed me by leaps and bounds.  Why? His recipes are fabulous and more importantly, he’s one of the nicest guys you will ever meet.  I know because I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him in person a couple of times.  His site is a wealth of information not just about delicious food but if you’re a food blogger, he’s done all the homework about blogging etiquette, social media, stats and everything else a blogger loses sleep over and he’s generously shared it all in his blog.



For my guest post I wanted to share something that wouldn’t disappoint Chef Dennis and his readers so I decided to go with another madeleine recipe. They are my latest obsession not just for their simplicity but also for their versatility.  For my first attempt I prepared these Chocolate Madeleines from Pierre Hermé.  This time, I decided to go the more traditional route but I couldn’t resist offering my own little twist.

I would love it if you would visit Chef Dennis to see my Honey Mango Madeleines.  If you end up lingering for, oh, an hour or so drooling over his delicious recipes and engaging manner, I wouldn’t blame you one bit!

Update: Recipe is available on this page, too.


Honey Mango Madeleines
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: Makes 12
  • ¾ cup (105 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon double acting baking powder
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup (65 grams) sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Grated zest of one lemon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons (2 ½ ounces, 70 grams) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons Mango-flavored tea (or any flavored tea you prefer) steeped in 8 ounces of hot water for 3 minutes
  1. Sift together the flour and baking powder in a bowl and set aside. Using a hand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the eggs and sugar together on medium-high speed for 2 – 4 minutes, or until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the honey, then the lemon zest and vanilla.
  2. Using a large rubber spatula, gently fold in the dry ingredients. Stir into the melted butter the two tablespoons of tea before also folding into the dry ingredients.
  3. Cover the batter with plastic wrap, making sure to press the wrap against the surface of the batter so it creates an airtight seal. Chill the batter for at least 3 hours—this will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
  4. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Butter your madeleine pan and dust it with flour, shaking off the excess. Even if you have a nonstick pan, it is recommended that you do this. Divide the batter among the molds, filling them almost to the top. There’s no need to smooth the batter, baking will settle it into the molds.
  5. Bake the madeleines for 11 – 13 minutes (if you have a mini madeleine pan, 8 – 10 minutes) or until the cakes are puffed and golden and spring back when touched. Remove the pan from the oven and rap the pan lightly against the counter to release the madeleines. Cool the madeleines slightly on a wire rack. They are best when still a bit warm or at room temperature. Makes 12 regular-sized madeleines.

  1. Oh my goodness! Your recipe of Mango Madeleines greeted me first thing when I turned on my system today! HOW MARVELOUS! I love it & must definitely try it. What do you think about my using fresh mango puree instead of mango-flavored tea? I have a case of fully ripened mangoes right now. Tempted to try your recipe today! Thanks for sharing. I just came from Chef Dennis’ site & will head back to get your recipe. Love your new look, Jean. The site is awesome. Cheers!

  2. I saw a photo of the Madeleines on Pinterest before I read about them anywhere else and instantly recognized them as something from the Lemons and Anchovies kitchen. 🙂 I love mango tea so I know these are a winner. Thanks as well for the introduction to Chef Dennis and his blog. Have a great weekend, Jean!

      Suzanne, that’s so sweet, thank you!!! Next time I think I’ll try my hand at savory madeleines. 🙂

  9. Hi Jean,
    Stopped by to complain. Today I made your coffee chocolate cake and it was the second time we end up eating it before I get to frost it. You have to tell me the secret to keep sticky fingers away from it so I can make it pretty and share a photo of it. Damn, it’s so good!
    Going to check your guest post now 🙂

    • lemonsandanchovies says:

      Oh, Roxana! I’m so glad you liked the cake. It is my go-to cake–it’s foolproof! My only advice is to bake it when no one’s home or when your little one’s taking a nap, LOL!

  10. Congrats on the guest post – I’ll head over there when I’m done admiring these madeleines! Thanks for sharing more of these delightful cookies – a perfect nibble with a cup of tea 🙂

  11. I must run over to visit Chef Dennis! Honey Mango Madeleines? Sounds absolutely brilliant 🙂

    • lemonsandanchovies says:

      Nami, do you ever go to the shop at Westfield San Jose? I could stay in there for hours. Plus, I love sampling a different tea each time I drop by. I haven’t had one that I didn’t like. They have a Chocolate Tea that is awesome!

  13. These are just beautiful! I’m off to Dennis’ place to check it out!

  14. OMG heading over Chef Dennis right now! these look incredible!!

  17. Lovely, lovely madeleines! The mango flavor is such a great idea!
