Cream Cheese Madeleines with Jam

4:16 PM 0 Comments

Guys these madeleines are amazing! I can't believe I haven't shared them yet because I've made them so many times.
If you've had regular madeleines and liked them you must try these! The cream cheese in these madeleines make them so tender, they practically melt in your mouth.
You can use any kind of jam for the topping or you can forget about the jam all together and these would still be good! I used lingonberry jam and I would highly recommend it!
If you don't have a madeleine pan, you can use a muffin tin and just not fill it up all the way.

Cream Cheese Madeleines with Jam

1/2 cup spelt flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
2 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup jam

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a madeleine pan with butter
2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder
3. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. Stir in sugar and whisk for about 3 minutes until completely blended
4. Add cream cheese and whisk for another 3 to 4 minutes. The add eggs, one at a time, whisking well after each addition until completely blended
5. Add zest, lemon juice, and vanilla then mix well. Whisk in flour mixture until just incorporated
6. Fill madeleine pan with batter until almost full. Using a teaspoon, place 1/2 teaspoon of preserves in the center in each. These just need to be on top as they will sink during baking
7. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until madeleines puff up and edges are golden brown
8. Remove pan from oven and let cool for a few minutes and then invert pan and remove madeleines
