Orange Madeleines

Madeleines are always the last ting I will thought of because my past Madelines forever can’t get that “hump” and my first set of moulds were already 10yrs old.. hehehe finally my “white elephants” came into usage after my baking frd shared her Madeleines.. 

I am so attracted and envy of her beautiful Madeleines SO asked if she can shared what’s the secret tricks to it… and the recipe she shared by shiokman was a breeze.. very simple and direct.. best ting is it can be leave in the fridge overnight before baking. 

of coz, I give it a oil twist to suit our taste…

So ytd before I jumped into bed, I got the batter done and give it a cold spa.

Baked it this morning…. With her tips…

Viola…. it works…. 
My 2 rascals were sold to it… Its so fragrant…  soft on the inside with crispy crust when serve hot. They immediately had 2 each right after I taken the pictures.

Tips that my Frd shared. 

 – put batter in fridge for at least 1 to 2 hrs.

 ( I put overnight)

– heat up mould before pour in the batter 

( I preheat it together with the oven)

– starts with recipe temperature 180 degree c first (I used 210 degree c 10mins). P.S. all ovens are different..so make 2 batches to test out your own oven heat. 

(* BASED on my oven, I set it to 180 degree but my oven temp was 200 degree)

Carlton hotel – Singapore 

Won a staycation in Aug..  it’s a giveaway by skin care by restlylane. HOW LUCKY isn’t it..  

FINALLY before the year end, we used the stay for old man’s birthday…  

I think they upgrade our room. It wasn’t supposed to have a bathtub..  and to our surprise… there is…  the happiest will be the kids…  but…  one prob… it’s see thru from the bed area and the bind is outside….  so they able peeping whenever whoever is inside -_-  
The breakfast buffet was yummy too.. Western, chinese, breads and pastries etc … But they are not fully halal.. as they do served ham that contain pork and pork siew mai .

what impressed me was their coffee selection. Usually most only served coffee. Add milk on your own. TEA..  WITH OR WITHOUT milk.. 

But here,  they had some selection of tea bags available. And there’s coffee machine available to make espresso, latte,  cuppucino, steam milk…  

Did I mentioned… there’s even a coffee machine available in the room? Beside the 3-in-1 available.. how cool isn’t it?  

 The purpose of the stay is celebrate birthday.mm how can Dun have cake right… 

So o check with the hotel if they do provide cake for birthday person… and they agreed to it… 

Happy birthday cake complementary from Carlton hotel. Supposed to be a slice….  as wat they told me 

Who knows…. came a huge slice of cake… it was delicious but we can’t finished it..  so we brought it back home for tea the next day.
