Gather the ingredients - * Flour * Granulated sugar * Eggs * Butter * Vanilla bean paste * Baking powder
Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat together the eggs, granulated sugar, and vanilla bean paste until smooth and pale yellow - about 8-10 minutes.
– In a small bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. – Combine the flour mixture with the egg mixture and fold it in gently so that you don't deflate the mixture.
Fold in the melted butter, again making sure not to deflate the eggs.
– Let the batter chill in the fridge for 1 hour. – Grease a standard madeleine pan with melted butter or non-stick cooking spray. – Scoop batter into the molds until they are 3/4 full.
Bake until the madeleines are light brown - about 12-13 minutes.
– Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
