Dulce De Leche Madeleines

Craving for a caramel-flavoured dessert? Try these Dulce De Leche Madeleines – a twist on the French classic.

Hello, everyone! I hope you’ re doing well. So am I – thanks for asking! I will be extremely quick today as I am working on my post during my “lunchtime” – I know things are a bit vague and not so strict these days, but I still try to stick to my schedule. But please don’t ask if that works 100% – I will lie :)

So, there are a couple of things/thoughts I’d like to share with you.

  1. As I promised in my previous post, I am going to have LOTS of dulce de leche recipes these days. I hope you don’t mind! Thus, I am proudly presenting these delightful Dulce De Leche Madeleines;
  2. That’s my birthday next week, so I must make something more complicated (Like a layer cake) with LOTS of dulce de leche. Do you agree with me? If you have some recipes in your collection, please do share!;
  3. It’s snowing outside! Yup, it’s April, 28, and it’s snowing;
  4. Remember I promised to share some other good news, besides moving to a house? We’ve got a puppy! I am a cat person, so that’s more Andrey’s “project”, but I still must admit he’s super cute!
  5. And the best part is that that’snot all. However, you must wait a little bit longer – I will tell you more next week (Because it’s better to stretch some good news over the course of a few weeks, right? :)
The photo was taken today – proof of #3 and 4 :)

Anyway, these Dulce De Leche Madeleines are amazing: they’re moderately sweet, with a deep caramel flavour, slightly crispier (from the caramelization) outside that other madeleine recipes, and they’re so addictive! Please go ahead and make some too!

Cheers for now.

Dulce De Leche Madeleines

Category: Uncategorized


  • 3 eggs, room temperature (Take from the fridge 2-3 hours prior baking)
  • 1/3 cup sugar (I used light brown)
  • 2/3 cup dulce de leche
  • 130 gr. butter
  • 1 cup flour, preferably cake&flavour, sifted+some for dusting
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder


  1. Melt the butter and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
  2. In meanwhile, in a large bowl place the eggs and beat with a whisk for 30 seconds, until foamy.
  3. Add the sugar and continue whisking for about 9 minutes.
  4. Stir in the dulce de leche and mix just to combine – the mixture will become less foamy, but that’s fine.
  5. Fold in the flour and baking powder. Don’t whisk the mixture – gently fold in the dry ingredients with a spatula.
  6. Reserve about 2 tbsp. of the melted butter and add the remaining in the batter. Gently mix to incorporate.
  7. Let the batter stay for at least 10 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to about 190 degrees C.
  9. Greece the madeleine moulds with the reserved melted butter, sprinkle with extra flour then tap the pan to remove the excess of flour.
  10. Fill each mould no more than 2/3 full – the batter will expand in the oven.
  11. Place the mould in the oven and immediately reduce heat to about 170-175 degrees C.
  12. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Don’t open the oven first 5minutes.
  13. Remove from the oven and immediately flip the mould to release the cookies. You can use a knife or spatula to release the cookies.
  14. Repeat with the remaining batter – just butter and sprinkle with some flour each time (No need to wash the moulds).
  15. Enjoy!

    First, these Dulce De Leche Madeleines look amazing!! Second, snow? It’s almost May…Third, your birthday week next week! So excited to see what you come up with to celebrate. And last, but not least, omg is your puppy ever cute! Congrats on your new fur baby. :)

  2. A puppy! What did you name him/her? Funny enough, we are actually getting 2 puppies tomorrow. So at least we can share stories over late night bathroom trips to the front yard, right? Also, don’t make us wait for more good news!

    In other news, these madeleines look amazing. I could eat dulce de leche with a spoon, and the thought of a madeleine covered in dulce de leche is enough to make me want to bake a batch. It would be in honor of your birthday, of course. :-)
