Mango Madeleines (Click for Bri)

Kumquat Madeleine
I had sort of planned to post for the Click for Bri event and then, with the deadline pending, as we are having a sort of difficult weekend in the family, it felt even more necessary. A very positive event is happening for one woman, who most of us have never met, named Bri who writes Figs with Bri. Bri is fighting cancer and dozens/hundreds of people are helping to pay for her out of pocket costs.

For my entry, I knew I needed to include mangoes. My uncle, who lost his battle to brain cancer a few years ago, was not only a mango lover but a mango pusher; and we all loved him for it.

Recipe:
Mango Madeleines

Adapted from Cook and Eat's Persimmon Madeleines
Beat together:
2 eggs
3/8 cup sugar

Add:
3/8 cup mango preserves
1/2 t vanilla

Sift in:
1/2 cup plus 2 T and 2 t flour
1/2 t baking powder

Fold in
3 oz unsalted butter, melted and cooled

After 10 minutes, put into mini-madeleine molds or teaspoons. Less is more--do not over fill.

You've gotta love a mango pusher.

That image is quite arresting. Especially set against the blue and white of your china.

This is really interesting. I practically grew up eating mangoes but never had it as a madeleine.
