Close your eyes. Go back in time. to 1958. Steve McQueen. Night time.
Yes,…. it…. is….
That amoebic like creature that tried to devour a small town.
Now consider the following picture…
That is the Blob that tried to eat my Kitchen, aka Fluff-Filled Chocolate Madeleines
Notice the similarities. Brown. Shapeless. Frightening!! Yep, that’s my madeleines. This was an important moment in my life. I discovered just how bad/cheap/worthless my madeleine pan really was. Trust me, there is a good one in my immediate future. THIS. WILL. NOT. HAPPEN. AGAIN.
On the plus side they tasted really good.
I filled, or tried to fill them with PB fluff, but that didn’t work. I dipped some in chocolate ganache. Didn’t help in their appearance. Just looked like dipped blobs!!
I sprinkled them, heavily, with powdered sugar…
and ended up with a snow covered blob. Wait, wasn’t it cold that killed the blob. Well, in this case the ‘snow’ killed the desire to use this pan ever again. It’s in the trash. And all the blobs are gone. They may have looked like something out of an old sci-fi movie, but they tasted really good.
Thanks to Margot of Effort to Deliciousness for teaching me the value of a good madeleine pan.
The recipe will be on Margot’s blob, eh blog. Or in Dorie’s BFMHTY on page 170.
Surely the other TWDers had better luck than me. Go see!!
