Traditional Madeleines get a Fall makeover with spiced pumpkin then dipped in dark chocolate.
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour plus more for dusting pan
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons puréed pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • 3 - 3½ ounces dark chocolate, melted
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F; butter and flour a madeleine pan (even if you're using a nonstick pan).
  2. Using a hand mixer, beat the eggs and sugar in a large bowl on medium speed for 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and spices then whisk into the egg/sugar mixture until well combined. Next, add the melted butter and pumpkin and whisk again until well combined.
  4. Spoon the batter into the madeleine mold and bake for 11-12 minutes or until the madeleines are light golden and spring back when touched.
  5. Remove the pan from the oven and tap on the counter to loosen the madeleines from the pan. Cool them in the pan for a few minutes then remove them and let them cool to room temperature on a rack.
  6. Melt the chocolate in a small bowl. Dip each madeleine in a little bit of chocolate and lay on a pan lined with wax paper. Cool at room temperature for about an hour or until the chocolate has set. Best enjoyed the day of.
