Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Melt the butter in a small pan and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, add the aquafaba and sugar. Beat on low for a few minutes until mixed and slightly foamy.
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture while beating on medium until well mixed. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter. Add the zest and the orange extract.
  6. Beat until the mixture is smooth and shiny. It will resemble a thick batter.
  7. If your pan is not a non-stick pan, flour and butter the madeleine pan and carefully spoon a tablespoon of the mixture into the pan. Bake in the oven for 4 minutes, then rotate and bake for another 4-8 minutes until golden brown. The middle of the madeleine should spring back when touched.
  8. Remove from the oven, leave the pan to cool for 2 minutes. Carefully remove the madeleines from the pan. Cool the madeleines with the flat side on a wire wrack.
  9. Repeat the baking process with any leftover batter.
  10. Once cooled, dust the madeleines with a little powdered sugar.
