Bonne Maman Madeleine Butter Pudding

Bonne Maman Madeleine Butter Pudding


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3.
  2. Grease a 20 cm x 4 cm (8in x 1½in) baking dish with butter. Line the dish with a single layer of Bonne Maman Madeleines. Brush melted butter over them.
  3. Sprinkle half of the lemon and orange peels over the top of the Madeleines, then cover with a second layer of Madeleines making sure to overlap them with the scallop shape facing up.
  4. As before, coat each Madeleine with butter and sprinkle the rest of the lemon and orange peels over the Madeleines and then put to one side.

    Gently warm the milk and cream in a pan over a low heat, but don't let it boil.
  5. Lightly whisk eggs and sugar until pale. Add the warm milk and cream mixture, then stir well. Strain the custard into a bowl and fold in the vanilla bean paste and orange blossom extract. 
  6. Pour part of the custard over the prepared Madeleine layers. Leave to soak for 5 mins, then pour over the rest and leave to stand for 20 mins.
  7. Place the dish into the oven and bake for 15 mins, or until the custard has set and the top is golden
  8. Leave to cool for 10 mins, then dust lightly with icing sugar before serving hot with the remaining custard.
