Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for pan
  • 1/2 cup fine yellow cornmeal, preferably stone-ground
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 6 ounces (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for pan
  • Orange Glaze

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together sugar and eggs in another medium bowl until pale and thick, about 2 minutes. Whisk in honey. Fold in flour mixture using a rubber spatula. Pour in butter in a slow, steady stream, folding gently to combine. Refrigerate batter for at least 4 hours (or overnight).

  2. Step 2

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter and flour a cast-iron pan, and fill about three-quarters full. Bake until golden around edges (time will vary depending on size of pan). Remove from oven, and immediately transfer madeleines from pan to a wire rack. Let cool. Coat each with glaze, and serve immediately.
