Magic Johnson and Irish Madeleines?


Sorry to be so cryptic on my marquee, but I'm in the middle of a million things, but ZI wanted you to know the what-what about what???

First off, Marjorie Johnson just called to tell me that she will be appearing on the Tonight Show Monday Sept 30th.

The producer informed her she will be making coffee cake with Jay and Magic Johnson. According to Marjorie, NBC is in agreement that any time Marjorie has a chance to tie an apron onto a 7 foot NBA legend......hi-jinx are sure to follow.

This will be like her 20th appearance on The Tonight Show, and possibly her last (Jay is retiring soon), but rumor has it that she might get one last Christmas baking slot before America's favorite funny man pulls the plug.

The coffee cake recipe is straight from her Blue Ribbon Baking book, so if you own a copy.....make sure to have it out so you can follow along.

Also, as many of you know, I have lessened my commitment this this blog and have been spending my time baking Irish (and UK) recipes.

I do have a page on Facebook called .....

Irish Baking Club -

Feel free to "LIKE" it...or not.

Anyway, let me leave you with a recipe that all the pretty kids in Dublin City are talking about.

Irish Madeleine's

2 Eggs

3/4 teaspoon of 2 Ginger's Whiskey

1 pinch of Salt

1/3 cup of Granulated Sugar

1/2 cup of A.P. Flour

1 tablespoon Grated Ginger

1/4 cup of Salad Oil

Typically most bakers butter their Madeleine forms, but I don't like the extra flavor, or fat. I just use generous applications of spray-release (this puts you into a position where you don't have to cut these little critters out of the pan).

Oven is @ 375.....bake them until they are golden brown, and pulling away from the wall.

Some like to sprinkle powder sugar, I don't...but that me....oh my opinion, this is one baked good that is best served with some warmth still in it.

If the Madeleine gets to room's soul will fly away.

Just say....................................

  1. I love Marjorie and can't wait to see her next to Magic Johnson! And now I have to buy a madeline pan. I've been asked to make treats for my sister-in-law's baby shower. Wouldn't they be perfect?
