January 11

eggs and sugar

It is Tuesday again peeps! and today I have made for you Fluff Filled Chocolate Madeleines mini-muffins.

flour and eggs

I had to finish them up this morning.

Even though I began making them yesterday morning…mixing and folding and refrigerating for 3 hours.

It was just as the 3 hour point was up that Superman came home and whisked us off to the car dealership to try and extend our rental because our loan paperwork isn’t finished yet.

Red tape blah de blah de blah…

We then spent the next 2 hours at the dealership doing paper work with a huge side of waiting.


The time spent at the dealership was profitable though.

I was able to wheel and deal for a 2003 Saturn Ion that only has 27,000 miles on it.

And I got it for $2,000 under book value.

I’ll post pictures tomorrow because right now, I’m to busy eating the leftover peanut butter ganache with a spoon.

If you’d like to make some fluff filled chocolate madeleines, then go check out Margo’s blog.   She has the recipe.

  1. Good job on the car…that sounds like a wonderful deal to me! Good job on these little mini muffins, too, they are so cute! I like the thought of doing these as a mini muffin because to me a Madeleine is NOT CHOCOLATE. It’s like reading Proust in English, there are some things that shouldn’t be messed with! You do take wonderful photos…are you sure you should not be pursuing a career along those lines somehow? The best!

  2. I am not part of Tuesdays with Dorie because I started too late, but I bake along..
    What a wonderful inventive idea..I wasn’t going to make them because I don’t have a Madeleine pan, and I agree I don’t think chocolate when I see Madeleine’s…but now I want to make them as mini’s…
    What camera do you use?
    Give lessons on dealing with car dealers…Please!!

    1. I have a Nikon D40x. I love it. My son and husband got it for me one year for Christmas. I need new lens and a new camera body, but I will NEVER part with this…it means way to much to me.

  3. Congratulations! Are you going to give tips on dealing with car dealerships? It looks like we could be looking for a new vehicle in the next few months too.

  4. Oh, NUH-UHH. You are NOT getting away with posting THAT PICTURE of peanut butter ganache WITHOUT a recipe. Come on…cough it up, lady! 😉 mmmm…I think there’s a chocolate cake in our near future if you DO post it!

  5. Oh my goodness, peanut butter ganache is a brilliant idea! Your cupcakes look absolutely divine. Congrats on the great deal and thanks for baking with me this week!
