  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Place the coconut oil in a large bowl and melt over a saucepan of boiling water or in the microwave (skip this step if not using any other oil)
  • Once melted, add the milk to the same bowl along with the lemon juice, lemon zest, maple syrup, vanilla and ground almonds
  • Sift in the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda
  • Mix well, adding a tiny splash more milk if it's looking too dry
  • Transfer mixture into a greased madeleine tin
  • Bake in oven for around 15 minutes until golden brown and an inserted skewer comes out clean
  • Once out the oven, remove from the tin and transfer onto a wire rack to cool
  • Tastes best when fresh, but keeps for a couple of days


*You can alternatively use almond flour
