Wikipedia says they are very small sponge cakes and Wikipedia is always right, right?
It's probably time that I will refer to this post from a while ago.
I did stop eating gluten and many of the carbs I used to eat (pasta, potatoes, bread) and I did feel a difference. I think.
I felt more awake, I had more energy and I even found it easier to concentrate.
I have no idea if it has anything to do with not eating gluten. I wasn't so black and white about it, so I think during a month or so I did eat a couple of times something containing gluten, so I can't tell what caused what.
Maybe I felt better because I looked more what I was eating, made healthier choices? Who can say?
I do try and reduce gluten, I choose to eat quinoa, millet and buckwheat rather than pasta, but I also don't say no to gluten or to carbs.
Being extreme with things is not good. That's what my mom always told me. And I try to listen.
a pinch of salt
3tsp baking powder
1 branch fresh rosemary, finely chopped (remove the leaves from the branch, of course ;)
vanilla pod, deseeded
Melt the butter and set aside to cool.
Mix the flour, salt, baking powder, chopped rosemary and vanilla seeds.
Add the eggs, honey and butter and mix well.
Pour the mixture into a Madeleine baking form, leave a bit of space on the top, otherwise they grow too much and pour out of the shape.
Bake for 14 minutes.
*I had only one Madeliene baking form with 12 holes. I baked the first batch, then the next one and they still turned out good.
