Makes about 24

2 lemons
5 eggs
1 cup superfine (caster) sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup melted butter

Preheat the oven to 450F. Finely grate the rind from the lemons. Beat the eggs, with the sugar, then stir in the flour. Add the baking powder, a pinch of salt, and the lemon rind and mix well. Add the butter and stir until well blended. Butter 2 or 3 madeleine trays. Sprinkle with flour and shake out any excess. Fill each madeleine mold with the batter and leave to stand for 10 minutes. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove the trays from the oven and unmold the madeleines immediately.

Would make this again.
I made some madeleins today; have not made them for many years. I had an "overflow" problem. How full should I fill the trays? My confections tasted more like cake than a cookie. Think they should be fairly thin and crunchy. Please let me know. 5 stars

Would make this again.
After reading all the other reviews, I made this recipe using a few tablespoons of extra lemon. They were excellent! I LOVE lemon. When I make them again, I will use a half cup LESS sugar. YUMMY! 4 stars
