Blueberries are ripe and delicious in stores now.
If I’m not eating them by the handful,
I like baking with them, they are so juicy and sweet, they are a great addition to baked goods, like Blueberry Banana Chocolate Chip Cake, Chocolate Blueberry Cheesecake Cupcakes and Blueberry Filled Cupcakes.
One of my favorite ways to enjoy blueberries is to add them to my Yummiest Pancake Recipe.
Today I’m baking them into madeleines….and I will mention, these are IRRESISTIBLE!!!
measure out all your ingredients
If you mix the blueberries into batter, the berries will crush and the batter will turn a purplish color, I decided I wanted to blueberries to stay in tact, so I placed one blueberry on the bottom of each well in the madeleine pan, then place two tablespoons of batter on top then two more blueberries.
Bake madeleines until they are golden on the edges and the madeleines spring back when pressed gently.
