Pumpkin Madelines

These madeleines are perfect with a hot cup of tea or coffee on a cold fall afternoon. They have a nice pumpkin spice flavor and are soft and fluffy. Recipe adapted from: The Yellow Table

Ingredients for the Pumpkin Madeleines:

  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg or mace
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)


  • I made this recipe with a hand mixer, which I would recommend, but this recipe can be made by hand or in a stand mixer.
  • As a substitution for the spices, you can use 1 or 1 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. 

Directions for the Pumpkin Madeleines:

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a madeleine tin.
  • Beat the sugar and oil together. Add the eggs,and pumpkin puree.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking powder and soda, salt, and all the spices. 
  • Whisk together the dry ingredients and slowly combine into the wet ingredients either by hand or on a low speed setting using the hand mixer.
  • Use a tablespoon, or a small spoon for the batter. Fill the whole tin, and bake for 10-11 minutes. 
  • Cool for 1-2 minutes, then turn the madeleines out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Optional: Dust with powdered sugar.
