  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 pinch salt
  1. Combine eggs, sugar, and honey in a large bowl. Whisk gently for 4 to 5 minutes. Avoid whisking too vigorously and do not use high speed if using an electric mixer; the end mixture should be light and frothy.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder into the egg mixture. Fold in gently until well combined. Add melted butter and salt, stirring well. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill batter in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 460 degrees F (240 degrees C).
  4. Fill silicone madeleine molds with the batter, filling each 3/4 full.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 minute, then reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Bake for 4 minutes, then reduce again to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 5 minutes more.
