Hi, does anyone have a good madeleine recipe? I've tried so many but most of them haven't turned out and I have no idea why.. I'm trying to replicate those from the delifrance bakery in my country. They taste like a rather light butter cake haha though I'm not sure if that's what they taste like overseas.

I recently made a batch and there were gigantic holes in the cakes

This was the recipe I used:

Madeleines (makes 20)

1 cup plain flour

½ cup + 2 tbsp butter, melted & cooled

1/3 tsp baking powder

2/3 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1/8 tsp salt

1 tsp lemon zest

2 tbsp lemon juice

[if !supportLists]1. [endif]Beat eggs & sugar til thick & pale (5min)

[if !supportLists]2. [endif]Beat in lemon juice & zest, vanilla, salt

[if !supportLists]3. [endif]Sift in flour, baking powder. Mix till just combined

[if !supportLists]4. [endif]Gradually mix in butter

[if !supportLists]5. [endif]Wrap bowl in cling wrap, chill overnight

[if !supportLists]6. [endif]Butter Madeleine tins & coat w flour. Invert & tap to remove any excess

[if !supportLists]7. [endif]Freeze pans for 30min

[if !supportLists]8. [endif]Spoon 1 tbsp of batter into tins

[if !supportLists]9. [endif]Bake @180 ⁰C for 20min
