  • Bake in a preheated oven until the madeleines are light brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Transfer the madeleines to a wire rack to cool.


  • Preheat your oven while you’re waiting for the batter to chill in the fridge! The oven will be nice and hot when you’re ready to bake the Pumpkin Madeleines. 
  • You can drizzle melted white chocolate on top for extra pizzazz.
