  • 1 ½ cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • dash salt
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • cups milk or non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

For Icing

  • cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 teaspoons lemon juice depending on how thick you want your icing


  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • In a large bowl, add your dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • Add your wet ingredients into a smaller bowl and whisk to blend.
  • Pour your wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until they are just barely mixed. Do not overmix your batter.
  • Allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Spray your madeleine pan with coconut oil, or grease with butter.
  • Add some batter to each madeleine section.
  • Bake for 10 minutes until they are firm to touch on top.
  • Cool then dust with powdered sugar.


  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF, Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend, and Authentic Foods Multi Blend in this recipe. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. Try not to overmix your batter. Your madeleines will be lighter if you don't overmix the batter.
  4. These cookies will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
