Instructions and steps:
Step 1Preheat oven to 160°C. Lightly spray a 12–hole madeleine tin with oil. Combine olive oil and zest in a small bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes to infuse.
Step 2Beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl using electric beaters until thick and pale. Add the infused oil and the lime juice; beat until mixture is just combined.
Step 3Sift the flour and baking powder together. Gently fold flour mixture into egg mixture, in 3 batches, until just combined. Place mixture in fridge for 10 minutes.
Step 4Spoon mixture into prepared tin. Bake for 10–15 minutes, or until golden and firm to touch. Transfer from the tin to a wire rack. Set aside to cool. Dust with icing sugar, to serve.
You can make these madeleines in round-bottomed patty cake tins. The recipe will then make 16.
