The chocolate Madelines were a big hit for Dave's birthday last night...even for Dan as they were gluten free! Thanks to the clever Sandrine for the inspiration...I know they will be a favourite with the kids now!! I had to use a different recipie as I forgot to buy next time I'll try using real chocolate instead of cocoa but these were gorgeous anyway....

3/4 cup plain GF flour
1/2 cup cocoa
Pinch salt
4 large eggs
1 cup caster sugar
185g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
Butter for buttering the madeleine tins

1. Sift together the flour, cocoa and the salt.
2. Place the eggs and the sugar in a large bowl and whisk until thick and lemon-colored. Fold in the flour, then melted butter.
3. Butter the madeleine pans, then spoon in the batter, filling each about three fourths full. Refrigerate the filled madeleine pans and the remaining batter for one hour.
4. Heat the oven to 220°C.
5. Bake the madeleines just until they are firm and puffed, about 7 minutes. Turn them immediately from the molds, wipe out the molds, let cool and continue baking the madeleines until all of the batter is used. The madeleines are best when eaten slightly warm or at room temperature the same day they are made.
