Chocolate orange Madeleines recipe (Magdalenas de naranja y chocolate)


And here we go again, winter begin here  and   on the northern hemisphere the summer , just take care, I heard that you will walk without a mask, I do not know, what I have learned that this  virus sometimes comes and goes.

In any case, we are still in quarantine here.

Today's recipe is orange and chocolate madeleines.

What can I say? My mom loved  madeleines

She told me that my Spanish grandmother always had madeleines  and scones there in Punta Arenas (very south of Chile) for tea time.

Finally our recipes and our kitchen is a compendium of our mothers and grandmothers and that is why we enjoy these recipes.

My granny  was married with a lovely English man so she received visits from many English ladies.

A hug to all who comes here and thanks!

3 tablespoons salted butter

(room temperature)

1 cup flour all purpose

2 tablespoon  organic orange zest

Generously grease each madeline mold with butter.

Whisk eggs, sugar and butter  together until fluffy and creamy.

Add flour and orange zest and orange juice and mix until just  combined 

Divide batter  between pans or molds and bake for 10 to 12 minutes

Invert pan and let the madeleines  cool for 5 minutes

While madeleines are cooling melt chocolate  being very careful not to burn .

Once the madeleines are cold dip them head first into chocolate.

Place the dipped madeleine on a plate  covered in wax paper and let chocolate harden by 10 minutes in fridge.

Pans you can buy in ebay or Amazon 

Magdalenas de naranja y chocolate


Si bien hay moldes especiales para magdalenas en E bay  se puede usar moldes de muffins.

Los mejores y no tan caros son los de Ebay. Mercado Libre muy caro. Por ejemplo este de silicona es muy bueno y salia como 12.000 lo digo porque si alguien quiere comprar.

Y a veces el envio es barato o gratis.

Los moldes duran casi para siempre.


3/4 taza de azucar

2 huevos

3 cucharadas de mantequilla temperatura ambiente

1 taza de harina sin polvos de hornear

2 cucharadas ralladura de naranja

1 cucharada de jugo de naranja natural

1 barra de chocolate amargo 60% cacao


Precalentar el hono a 180° c  (375° F)

Enmantequillar los moldes de magdalena o de muffins   y enharinar un poco para  cuando se agregue la masa el molde este listo.

En un bol batir los huevos,azucar y mantequilla hasta que la mezcla este liviana y cremosa, lo hago con una cuchara de palo.

Suavemente agregar la harina, la ralladura de naranja y el jugo de naranja, hasta que este bien mezclado.

Repartir con una cuchara la mezcla entre los moldes de magdalena que estan enmantequillados.

Llevar a horno y  hornear por unos 10 a 12 minutos, ver si estan dorados y secas estan listas. Se cocinan rápido.

Dejar enfriar las magdalenas unos 5 minutos y retirar suavemente con la punta de un cuchillo.

Mientras las magadalenas se enfrian derretir a fuego muy suave o en microondas, si es en microondas debe ser cada 15 segundo e ir probando debe estar cremoso y no recalentar.

Despues ir pasando las magdalenas por el chocolate, solo la punta y dejar en un plato para que se sequen.

Despues llevar al refrigerador por unos 10 minutos para que se enfrie el chocolate y estaran listas.

  1. We love madeleines too! The combo of chocolate and orange is wonderful.

  2. What a lovely story about your grandmother, Gloria. She would be happy that you made Madelines :) They sound and look so delicious! I hope things get better for you soon in Chile. Yes, many are not wearing masks here any longer since so much of the populations has been vaccinated. I do worry about the new variant Delta though. I think those who have chosen to not get vaccinated may suffer and prolong this pandemic :(

  3. Thanks dear Susan .yes I know is difficult when the people dont want be vaccinated and anyway of you are vaccinated you can be sick only you Will be ok soon.
    Send you hugs and love xoxo

  4. Gloria, Great looking cookies and they are among our favorites! As for being locked down, we are pretty much wide open. We've had our vaccine but many haven't Time will tell if our opening up here in the USA was smart or not. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  7. What perfect madeleines, Gloria! I need to dust off my pan and make a batch---it's been way too long! We're doing fine here. We're all vaccinated so we can go without masks unless a store owner requests we wear them. Right now we're up in Wisconsin on a lake with some of Bill's family for a nice vacation. Katie drove up with us and the boys will be coming on Thursday. It will be wonderful to have everyone together! xoxo

  10. Che buone queste Madeleines. Cioccolato ed arancia, poi, stanno benissimo insieme!
    Le ricette di famiglia hanno quel tocco in più <3.
    Qui l' estate è già iniziata da due settimane: le temperature sono davvero alte e l' idea di accendere il forno mi terrorizza. Ma prima o poi proverò queste tue Madeleines!
    Un grande abbraccio

  14. Oranges from your yard! I'm so envious. I love orange in baked things, and I love the combo of orange and chocolate. I also love that this recipe has such a personal connection for you.

  15. This looks like a lovely treat! As you enter winter- it is hot here and I have been trying to spend more time outside enjoying the light and weather. Where I live vaccinated people can go without masks and non vaccinated people need to wear masks- so it seems like about half the people are masked most places (indoors). Stay safe and well!
