Mini Madeleines

Introduction & Inspiration

These mini ''Madeleines'' were inspired from the madeleine or petite madeleine which is a traditional small cake from the Lorraine region in northeastern France. Madeleines are very small sponge cakes usually with a shell shaped appearance. As they have a very similar taste and texture, these little beauties were born!

I hope you'll like them!

Cooking Time

Less Than 30 minutes

Serving Size

15 x Mini ‘’Madeleines’’

Main Ingredients

35g Pressure Cooked Tripe

20g Tallow

105ml Egg Yolk Sauce

30g Honey

Recipe Instructions

Pre heat the oven to 160c.


Place the tallow and pressure cooked tripe into a pan on low heat. Stir constantly until the fat has melted. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the contents into a small mini blender. Blend the mixture until smooth.


Add the honey and egg yolk sauce to the mini blender and blend once more, until all the ingredients are well combined.


Grease a silicone mould tray with tallow or lard.


Pour the contents of the blender container into the mini rectangular holes of the mould tray.


Put the tray on a baking tray and place in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes. Once done, brown the tops for 1 - 2 minutes for a little extra colour (optional). Keep an eye on them to ensure they don't burn!


Remove the tray from the oven, and allow the mini ''madeleines'' to rest on the countertop to cool for 5 -10 minutes.


Place them on a serving plate and enjoy warm. They also taste great cold too!


Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.




Ideally, purchase your offal and fat from pasture raised animals that are Nitrate, Nitrite & Additive Free.


Be sure to use free range, organic eggs to make your egg yolks sauce. Whether you can eat eggs may depend on your condition, medical history, the time you have been doing PKD and your health goals. If you're unsure, please consult with ICMNI in Hungary (Home - Nutriintervention).


Any honey should be of organic quality, and is only recommended in small quantities for those who have recovered from any kind of health condition.
