Madeleines and a Giveaway



I hv been wanting to bake Dorie's Chocolate Madeleines eversince hb got me her book in 2009.. didnt get to it till now actually.. the story behind my Madeleines is simple.. When i looked at the recipe in her cookbook.. it had a much diff persona...





Chocolate Madeleines are filled with marshmallow fluff..(errr naah) and dipped in a chocolate glaze..( yayyyy). Dorie's "playing around" suggestions include replacing the fluff with Nutella.. (yayyy) but i discovered my Nutella expired a few months ago.. hmm how does someone who loves Nutella allow that to happen? shrugss . then i decided to discard the idea of trying out Dorie's Madeleine for now and try out a totally different recipe .. cracked eggs, added icing sugar, whisked em, folded in my sifted flour and added in my melted butter and vanilla extract.. placed my batter in my fridge and after 12 hrs sitting in my fridge, i took my batter out.. poured batter into my pipping bag and pipped it into my new Madeleines pan.. baked it and called it a success. Then I ate them all for breakfast after my so called workout (climbing up and down the staircase) Yes.. I did. And they were fabulous! ahaksss




So this blog is about two things (actually three things)... one, a Madeleine recipe. Two: A giveway that I will be having this week... smiling fm ear to ear?.... and three my new sponsor (which is linked to the giveaway)...

You see, hubby's company deals in many different things and one of them is a french kitchen supplies range called MASTRAD. (They are the ones who started with the funky coloured kitchen utensils). So hubby's work - which receives weekly doses of cakes etc from him - decided to "sponsor" Bisous A Toi! Thank you!




So first up, is the Mastrad Madeleine pan. You prob noticed that I so far have only used metal pans. Silicone bakeware put me real off some time ago when I bought a not so cheap one from Italy. The rubber smell leaked into my cake and I threw it away. So when Mastrad asked me to try their silicon ware I hesitated. But the product is superb!! No smell, no burning, no rust, easy to wash and hv i told ya that i hv been using Mastrad digital scale for the last 2yrs.. awesome awesome product!




Also in the "starter set" that I received besides the madeleine pan were 3 bright pink utensils: A spatula, a spoon and a flipper/turner..(ideal for fliping pancakes and crepes and also for spreading batter or icing cakes)




And do you notice that there are two of each of the 3 utensils??? HELLO!! hehhe

Well Mastrad has also sponsored me for my next giveaway. yayyyy.. these Mastrad baking utensil are to die for.. take the spatula for instance.. it has a little weight and superb at scraping out mixing bowls and pans, leaving not a drop of wastage of ur cake batter or meringue .. it is also heat proof meaning u can leave it on the edge of ur pan and it wont burn or melt or make ur food taste of plastic.. all the things abv can easily cost u close to $100 and it cud be urs if u answer a simple question..

What is the colour of my MASTRAD rolling pin??

(Answer can be found in my blog. Post the answer in the comment box below (not via "contact me") and don't forget your name! Winner with the correct entry will be chosen at random!) easy peasy.. so hurry and leave me a comment.. contest ends Saturday Night at 7pm and i will choose one lucky winner using random.org.. so good luck ladies (and some gents).. cheerios!!
