Directions

The madeleines
1.
Heat a small saucepan on medium heat, and add the sliced butter, making sure to whisk frequently with a wooden spoon to prevent the butter from burning. The melted butter should start to foam up a little bit, and then separate. Watch the butter carefully as lightly browned specks begin to form at the bottom of the pan.

2. Once the butter has colored and has a nutty aroma, remove from heat and place on a cool surface like a owl full of cold water to help stop the butter from cooking further. Filter through a fine mesh strainer to discard the lactose and keep only the clarified butter (also know as ghee). If you don’t have a strainer fine enough, just skim the surface with a spoon to remove the lactose. Set aside to cool

3. Combine flour, baking powder, shredded coconut and ground almond in a medium bowl, whisking together. Set aside.

4. Beat together the eggs, sugar, ginger and honey using an electric mixer or by hand. This should take about 5 minutes, the mixture should increase in volume and become pale in color.

5. Sift the flour and baking powder over the egg, sugar and honey mixture. Fold gently with a rubber spatula until just combined. Finish by folding in the clarified butter and mix until smooth.

7. Cover the batter and refrigerate for about 1-2 hour or until completely chilled.

8. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Generously butter and dust your madeleine pan with flour. Spoon the batter into each cavities, filling about 2/3 of the way because the madeleine will swell.

9. Bake for about 10 – 12 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the middle of the madeleines forms a small bump. Transfer the pan to a cooling rack before un-molding. You can dust the madeleines with powdered sugar just before serving.

The chocolate sauce
1. Melt butter into heavy cream in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Keep an eye on it and stir occasionally with a wooden spoon.

2. Stir in chocolate and mix until melted and smooth. Make sure to use a wooden spoon as metal doesn’t work well with chocolate. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
