Steps

  • Melt the butter in the microwave or on the stove.
  • Let cool to just warm.
  • Combine flours, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Combine eggs and sugar in bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed for about 6-8 minutes until very light and thick and the batter falls off the beater in ribbons.
  • Add vanilla and beat to combine.Sift flour mixture over the egg mixture in three additions. Use a rubber spatula to carefully fold the flour mixture in, trying not to deflate the batter as much as possible.
  • Add the butter in two additions, folding in carefully to incorporate.Scrape out batter in a container and cover. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight if possible.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and lightly flour a madeleine mold.Fill madeleine mold about 3/4 full. The batter will be thick - there's no need to spread the batter out or flatten it out, as the scooped round shape will help it form the distinctive "hump" when it bakes.
  • Bake about 8-10 minutes. until the madeleines are golden brown and dry and springy to the touch.
  • Remove from oven and immediately turn out madeleines onto a wire rack.
  • Let cool before glazing.
  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until smooth. If it seems too thick, add another teaspoon or two of milk.Dip madeleines halfway in glaze and place on wire rack set over a baking sheet or paper towel to let dry.
