5 g Baking Powder

5 g Honey

3. Preheat the oven to 200°C.

4. Fill the dough carefully into the baking tin.

5. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Check to see if they are done by inserting a knife tip into the middle of a madeleine. If no dough sticks to the knife, they are ready. Once baked, leave for 15 minutes to cool slightly before removing from the baking tin.
