Bonsoir mes amis voules-vous des Madeleines sans gluten? Milk free, low FODMAP.

IMG_1818 These little plump cakes are easy to make and are just the ticket if you want to have a little something sweet but don’t want to go overboard on calories, they are gluten-free, low fodmap and milk free. The secret is to eat one! I love France, particularly Paris I have been twice and still would love to go back. Here is the recipe:


130 g  Castor sugar

2 medium eggs

Grated rind of 1 lemon + juice of 1/2 lemon

225 g of gluten-free self-raising flour

120 g of dairy free margarine

Horse statue outside the Musee d’Orsay


Add the castor sugar, lemon juice and eggs to a bowl. Whisk over a pan of warm water until at least double the volume.

Melt the margarine and add the grated lemon rind, pour into a measuring jug.

Drizzle the margarine slowly into the batter and continue to whisk, then add the flour and mix slowly with a metal spoon until it is fully incorporated.

Allow the batter to cool and put a heaped teaspoon of batter into a Madeleine tray. Cook at gas mark 6 until risen and golden.

Remove from the tray and cool – makes about 18.IMG_0923
