The Omni King Edward Hotel’s Baby Bump Madeleines

This recipe was created by the hotel for the Baby Shower Tea, in honor of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child.


½ cup unsalted butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
3 large eggs (room temperature)
¾ cup granulated sugar

Yield: 20-24 madeleines


1. Melt butter in a sauce pan and set aside to cool to room temperature.

2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.

3. In a stand mixer, whisk eggs and gradually add sugar. Continue whisking at medium speed until the mixture becomes thick and pale in color.

4. Gently fold in flour with a rubber spatula until just combined. Fold in melted butter being careful not to deflate mixture.

5. Preheat oven to 375 F. and brush madeleine mold with melted butter and dust with flour.

6. Scoop a heaped tablespoon of batter into each mold and bake for approximately 12 minutes until they have risen and are golden brown. A properly baked madeleine should have a small bump on one side thus resembling a baby bump.

7. Dust with icing sugar and serve with your favorite cuppa tea.
