Simple Sponge Bites
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C | 350F | gas 4. Grease 2 x 12 hole madeleine trays.
Beat together the eggs, icing sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl with an electric hand-held whisk until thick and shiny.
Add the flour, 25g at a time, to the mixture, as well as the baking powder and fold in gently. Once all the flour has been folded in, fold in the melted butter until incorporated.
Spoon into the moulds, leaving them about three-quarters full with the batter. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden and risen.
Remove and allow them to cool in the trays for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to finish cooling. Serve warm or cold.
