    Chef Sheilah Kaufman demonstrates how to make Cornbread Thyme Madeline’s as the perfect accompaniment to your favorite soup recipe.

    Sheilah Kaufman: Hi, I am Sheilah Kaufman, and today we're going to be making Cornbread Thyme Madeleines. Usually I like sweet foods, but these savory little bites are fabulous for any occasion they go with everything. We're using Canola oil which is heart healthy and has a very high smoke point and it's very versatile for cooking, baking, fry, anything you would need a good oil for.

    These are the ingredients you will need. So we're going to began by sifting together flour, white cornmeal, sugar. If you don't have a sifter you can use a very fine strainer and just bounce it up and down; baking powder, salt. Now, we're going to add the wet to the dry so here comes out buttermilk and our melted canola margarine I want to incorporate this really good.

    And now the fresh thyme that we chopped yum-yum and a little bit of freshly ground pepper. And finally if you're going to use the corn you wanted it well drained and we're going to add it to the mixture, mix it well. Now we're ready to make the madeleines. We're going to take some canola spray all you have to do is spray and go.

    And you want to remember to fill your madeleines pans only half full with 4 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder they're really going to rise. This makes a lot of madeleines you might have to repeat using your pans several times. Now because we're using white flour and white cornmeal these are not going to get real-real brown so you'll have to be aware of that.

    They usually brown on one side and stay white on the other. When you through filling your trays just take paper teller and napkin and wipe off any excess oil. Now that our trays are filled we're going to pop these in a 400 degree oven adding 8 minutes these will be ready and we can eat them. Now that we've finished baking them we'll put them out and they're ready to go; glass of wine, glass of milk we can freeze them or why wait let's eat them.
