regular liquid egg substitute

¼ cup(s)

powdered sugar

6 Tbsp

unsalted butter

2 Tbsp

orange-flavored liqueur

½ fl oz

all-purpose flour

3 Tbsp

orange zest

1 tsp

bittersweet chocolate

½ oz, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 12-shell madeleine mold with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, whisk the egg substitute until frothy. Whisk in the confectioners’ sugar, butter, and liqueur, then stir in the flour and orange zest. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the batter into each shell of the madeleine mold. Bake until golden brown, 11–12 minutes. Cool in the mold on a wire rack 1 minute, then remove the madeleines from the mold and cool completely on the rack. Put the chocolate into a microwavable bowl. Microwave on Medium, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted, about 11/2 minutes. Using a small spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate over the cooled madeleines.


Madeleines are little shell-shaped cakes, crisp around the edge and spongy inside. They are baked in special molds with scallop-shell-shaped indentations; if you prefer, you can bake mini muffins from this recipe instead.
