Ingredients

Ancho Chile Butter:

Cornbread Madeleines:

Directions

Special equipment:
a madeleine mold
  1. For the ancho chile butter: Mix the butter, cilantro, ancho powder, honey and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. For the madeleines: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray the madeleine mold with cooking spray.
  3. Mix the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter and egg until well mixed. Stir the flour mixture into the buttermilk mixture until just combined; do not overmix. Fold in the Cheddar, corn and jalapenos.
  5. Scoop 1 heaping tablespoon of the mixture into each madeleine mold. Gently tap the mold to release any air bubbles. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. Serve the madeleines dolloped with the ancho butter.
