i thought it would be fun to create some red velvet Madeleine's for valentines day.
i also made a concrete platter using a silicone tart mould from wholeport.com shown in the photo above it was really easy to make, i suggest using a silicone mould rather than a metal tin as you can peel it off more easily. i placed a circular pipe onto the tart mould then poured in concrete, once it was dry i removed it from the mould and removed the pipe and threaded string through the hole and that's all it took. it would also be great as a cheese board.
the Madeleine's are easy to make to, everything can be made in one bowl.
Makes approx 10 cakes
1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp plain flour
5 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp butter melted
2 tsp cocoa
red food colouring
2 tsp buttermilk
1/2 tsp baking powder
melt the butter, stir in gel food colouring while butters warm as it will break it down, in a bowl add the sugar, 1/4 cup flour, salt and cocoa and then pour in the butter and egg and stir then add the butter milk,
add the remaining 3 tbsp flour
cover with cling film and put in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
take the moulds andget them ready by brushing melted butter into them and sift over some flour, tap then to remove any excess flour and place them in the fridge to,
you can also get a Madeleine mould from wholeport.com my father got mine from France where he lives.
preheat the oven to 360f
spoon the cake batter into each cavity 3/4 full
bake for 8/10 minutes
sprinkle with icing sugar.
