  • 125 g butter
  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 100 g sugar
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • ½ t vanilla extract
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 180 g self-raising flour
  • 1 T poppy seeds
  • ½ t ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup plain yoghurt
  • lemon curd, for serving (optional)
  • 50 g flaked almonds, to garnish
  • For the easy ClemenGold marmalade:
  • 2 ClemenGolds, sliced into thin wedges
  • 3x3 cm ginger piece, peeled
  • 100 g sugar

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Using an electric hand-mixer, cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.

Add the eggs, vanilla, the lemon zest and juice, flour, poppy seeds, cinnamon and yoghurt and mix.

Lightly grease a madeleine tin, then spoon in the batter. Bake for 10–15 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

To make the ClemenGold marmalade, place the ClemenGolds, ginger and sugar in a saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil and cook for 10 minutes, softening the skins and reducing the syrup.

Serve the madeleines with the marmalade and lemon curd. Garnish with the flaked almonds.
