1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter,
Chocolate Glaze

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour the madeleine pan. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

Brush the warm glaze over the madeleines with a pastry brush. Let cool and store in an airtight container.
