Suggested variation; try this recipe with a fresh raspberries instead of the strawberries.
Heat the butter until it foams and starts to smell nutty, then leave to cool.
Combine the flour, ground almonds and icing sugar in a bowl and whisk in the eggs whites. Pour the cooled butter through a sieve into the bowl and whisk into the mixture until evenly mixed. Leave the cake mixture to rest in the fridge for an hour.
Preheat the oven to 170?C (150? fan) / 325F / gas 3 and oil and flour a 12-hole Madeleine mould.
Spoon the mixture into the moulds and press a strawberry quarter into the top of each one, then transfer the tin to the oven and bake for 10 - 15 minutes. Test with a wooden toothpick, if it comes out clean, the cakes are done. Transfer the cakes to a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes before serving in paper cupcake cases.
