If I’m not eating them by the handful,

I like baking with blueberries,

they are so juicy and sweet, they are a great addition to baked goods,

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!!!


Gather all your ingredients

there aren’t many but you’ll want to have everything ready to go when you begin and you’ll need to melt the butter and allow it a few minutes to cool

If you mix the blueberries into the batter, the berries will crush and the batter will turn a purplish color, I decided I wanted to blueberries to stay intact,

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.

  1. Thank you for all the wonderful madeleines recipes, I inherited my chef cousins pans. These kind of recipes have been hard to find!

    1. Hi, the measuring cups are from world market, they have matching measuring spoons too. The small heart shaped dishes are from pottery barn, the larger heart dish I don’t recall where I purchased it.

    1. Vanilla bean paste and vanilla extract are interchangeable, you use the same amount. If you haven’t tried vanilla bean paste, I recommend it, it’s delicious!
