These Rainbow Madeleines with a delicate flavour of lime and peppermint are an excellent way to celebrate Pride Month.
Hello, everyone. I hope you’re doing well. It might be raining again (Old same, old same) in our area, but there’s no reason to be sad. First of all, it’s official summer (Although the weather seems to disagree with the calendar) now. Secondly, I’ve brought these positive Rainbow Madeleines, and I hope they will spread all these summer vibes.
I normally not a huge fan of artificially coloured desserts, but I wanted to celebrate Pride Month (Which is being wrapped up; however, Halifax pride will be only in a month) this year. Since I’ve been having a kick on making madeleines this year, I didn’t need too much time to decide: Rainbow Madeleines to be!
It took me two attempts to make these guys. For my first attempt, I didn’t really care for the flavour profile or their appearance. Indeed, when I was about to make the batter, I realized we didn’t have eggs in the fridge. Luckily, we had a package of egg whites, so I was confident that the attempt would fail. In case you’re wondering, you can absolutely make madeleines without egg yolks. Neither the flavour nor shape is affected; however, the texture is slightly different, chewier.
I planned my second attempt accordingly, and I even bought eggs :) They tasted like madeleines, but they turned slightly flat. That has a simple reason – when you’re filling the molds with thin coloured layers, it’s rather challenging to fully control the amount of the batter. That’s not a huge problem, though, because they are still pretty, aren’t they? I also incorporated some lime and peppermint, to give more fresh summer vibes.
And the best part? I’ve painted this rainbow background. I am not quite sure what I liked more – these Rainbow Madeleines or the background.
Anyway, these Rainbow Madeleines are a little bit time consuming to make but they’re eye-pleasing, and they are so much joy to eat. Perfect for this time of the year. Happy Pride Month, if you’re celebrating.
