Madeleines with Lemon Curd at Brooklyn Bridge Park

Today starts my new summer season 'I really wanna go outside'. All new episodes every Friday for the next 5 weeks featuring my favorite recipes to take out on a sunny day. By the end of each episode you'll watch me savor my recipe outdoors at some of my favorite places in Brooklyn with my friends/family/dog.

In this first episode you will learn how to make a chewy Madeleine filled with lemon curd. This classic buttery cake with hints of orange will get even better if you decided to fill them with my sweet-tangy-creamy lemon curd . After baked you can also play with as many toppings as you want and half dip of fully dip your Madeleines into chocolate or sugar glaze and sprinkle it with... well, whatever!

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp orange zest
4 egg whites
1/2 cup butter - 100g
lemon curd
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon zest
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp butter
yields 22 madeleines 

If you are interested in making my pink raspberry lemonade with real colors from mother nature, here it is:
3 lemons
1L water
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup raspberries

Directions: Squeeze the lemons in the water . Use a sieve since there are a lot of seeds in lemons. In a pan add the raspberries and sugar. Over medium heat cook it for 7-10 minutes until syrupy. Let it cool and add to the lemonade. Stir and serve it with ice cubes and fresh raspberries .

Oh summer, please promise you won't 'leave' soon?!
