Hatch Chile Madeleines

I love classic Madeleines. I make Cornbread Madeleines so I thought I'd add Hatch Chiles to Madeleines for a Texas version.
You could use canned, chopped Green Chiles instead of fresh Hatch Chiles. It's Hatch Chile Season here. There are festivals at every market. I recently took a cooking class featuring Hatch Chiles and I blogged about it.
Here's my latest obsession with Hatch Green Chiles.

3 - 5 Roasted Hatch Chiles, finely diced ( or use 1- 4oz. can of Diced Green Chiles), drain well. I also use canned Hatch Chiles.
1 small onion, finely diced
2 C grated Hatch Jack Cheese ( Pepper Jack can be used if you don't have access to Hatch Jack)
4 TBS butter, melted
2 C cornmeal
1/2 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
2 C buttermilk
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Pre heat oven to 400 degrees
2 Madeleine Pans ( One will do, but with two you can bake them all at the same time)

Whisk together, in a small bowl:
baking powder
baking soda
cayenne pepper

In a separate bowl. combine:
Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients

Fold in:
Hatch Chiles

Divide batter among the molds and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove from oven and tap the pan on a hard surface to release the madeleines.
Cool them completely on a wire rack.

Peace in the Kitchen!


2 tsp Olive Oil
1/4 tsp diced onion
1 C Cornmeal
1 C Flour
1 TBS Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Large Egg
1 C Whole Milk
4 TBS Honey
5 TBS Butter, melted, room temperature
1/2 C chopped Hatch Chiles
1/2 C Grated Monterey Jack Cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare Madeleine Pans, brush them with my Pan Release Mix (equal parts of Crisco, Vegetable Oil and Flour) I start with 1 C of each and keep it refrigerated in a jar. I always have it available for all of my baking needs.
I have Madeleine Pans and Financiers Pans that I use for this recipe.

In a skillet on medium heat:
Heat the Olive Oil
Add Onion for 5 minutes.
Set aside to cool.

In a mixing bowl:
Baking Powder
Whisk well.

In a small bowl:
Whisk well.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and Whisk to combine.
Fold in the Onion, Hatch Chiles and the Cheese, by hand.
Fill the Madeleine molds with 1 TBS of batter.
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.

Serve with your favorite Picante Sauce.

Peace in the Kitchen!
