Chocolate Madeleine Batter

Ingredients: Chocolate Madeleine Batter

  • 7.2 oz
    butter
  • 4 bean(s)
    Vanilla beans
  • 4.2 oz
    All purpose flour
  • 1.9 oz
    Callebaut Cocoa powder
  • 0.3 oz
    baking powder
  • 5.3 oz
    whole eggs, room temperature
  • 2.6 oz
    inverted sugar
  • 0.3 oz
    Grapeseed oil
  • 1.8 oz
    whole milk
  • As needed
    Butter, Softened
  • As needed
    All purpose flour

Preparation: Chocolate Madeleine Batter

  1. Melt the butter together with the vanilla bean scrapings and the vanilla bean to infuse in a saucepan. Keep warm.
  2. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.
  3. Whip the eggs, sugar, salt and inverted sugar to ribbon stage in the mixer.
  4. Once the mixture is fluffy, add in the oil and mix using a spatula.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the whipped egg mixture and fold it just until it comes together.
  6. Strain the infused butter and add it into the egg mixture in several additions.
  7. Mix well after each addition.
  8. Warm the milk to 50°C (122°F) and add it to the batter. Mix until perfectly combined and smooth.
  9. Pour the mixture into a bowl, cover with plastic film and make sure the plastic touches the surface of the batter to prevent a skin from forming.
  10. Refrigerate the batter overnight.
  11. Butter the madeleine mold using a brush. It is very important to apply a thin, even layer of butter into the mold.
  12. Sift the flour onto the molds. Tap the mold on the side in both directions to ensure the molds are evenly floured and then remove the excess flour.
  13. Pour the batter into a piping bag. Flatten it on the table and let the batter warm up, if needed, in order to pipe more easily.
  14. Pipe into the prepared madeleine molds. It is important that the molds are all uniformly filled from the front to the back. About 90% of the mold should be filled.
  15. Place the mold into the freezer for 10 minutes.
  16. After 10 minutes in the freezer, immediately bake at 180°C (356°F) for 8-10 minutes, depending on the power of your oven. For the best result, put the madeleine tray from the freezer straight into the hot oven onto an already hot tray.
  17. Remove from the oven and unmold immediately. Allow to cool completely on a rack.

Dark Chocolate Piping Ganache

  1. Combine the glucose syrup and the milk in a small saucepan and bring to the boil.
  2. Combine the chocolates in a mixing bowl.
  3. Pour the boiled milk mixture over the chocolates and emulsify using a spatula.
  4. Once the ganache forms, add in the heavy cream and continue blending until smooth and uniform. Emulsify with an immersion blender in order to achieve the best possible texture.
  5. Pour the ganache out into a mixing bowl and cover with plastic film.
  6. Allow to crystallize at room temperature until the ganache reaches the proper piping consistency. This usually takes around 4 hours.
