For the Glaze

  • Add about 2 TBS batter into each madeleine cup – about 3/4 full, but no more
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes
  • Cool for 10 minutes and remove from pan
  • Cool completely while making the glaze
  • To make the glaze, add powdered sugar to a small bowl and mix with water until you get the consistency you want.
  • Dip cooled madeleines in glaze and sprinkle with lavender. Let set for 30 minutes before serving
