Proust: À la recherche de temps perdu

Original manuscript pages


Recipe courtesy of Marie-Thérèse Gohier

4          Eggs
½ C    Powdered Sugar
1 C      White Flour
1 tsp.   Baking Powder
¼ lb.   Butter

Allow the butter to soften.  Mix all ingredients together.  Pour into madeleine moulds, lightly greased or Teflon™ coated. (If you don’t have these, cupcake tins will work – fill each cupcake 1/2 full. But it’s blasphemy.)  Bake 15 minutes at 375°. Don’t open the oven until the 15 minutes are up.

Dust with powdered sugar and serve.

Makes 24.
