lemon madeleine:
mix the eggs with the sugar, add the sifted flour, baking powder, salt, melted butter, creme fraiche and the lemon zest through it. Pour the dough into muffin baking forms and bake at 170C for about 10min. and leave to cool. Make the biscuit hollow inside and roll the edges into melted white chocolate/cocoa butter, and roll it through the coconut

you can also make a meringue and fill it with strawberry compote (as on the picture)

strawberry compote:
bring the strawberries, some sugar and lemon juice to boil, boil until it’s thickened and leave to cool. Fill the (hollow) of the biscuit with this compote

mix the egg whites with the icing sugar. Mix, seperately, the eggs with the icing sugar, add the grounded almonds, flour, meringue and the freeze dried strawberries. Divide this thinly over a baking tray and bake at 190C for about 8 min., leave to cool and take small circles (8cm) with baking rings

white chocolate cremeux:
bring the milk, whipped cream and vanilla bean seeds to the boil. Stir the egg yolk and add it to the milk, heat it till 81C. Add the (pre) soaked gelatin, and pour it over the white chocolate and stir well. Pour it into small half-spheres silicone molds and put it in the freezer

strawberry mousse:
boil the sugar and water till 121C, mix the egg whites and pour the sugar syrup slowly over the egg whites and continue to mix until the mixture is cooled.  Heat the strawberry puree with some lemon juice till 76C, add the (pre) soaked gelatin, cool it till 30C. Add carefully the egg whites and the mixed whipped cream. Pour into large half-spheres silicone molds, place the frozen white chocolate cremeux and push it down a little, add a slice of joconde biscuit on top, put it in the freezer

heat the milk, water and glucose, add the (pre) soaked gelatin, pour over the chocolate and stir well. Add some red colour, take a blender, mix through the glacage to remove the air bubbles and to make the glacage smooth and shiny. When the glacage has a temp. of around 34C, pour it over the frozen domes and divide it over the madeleine bisuit

italian meringue: (for the dots)
boil the sugar and water till 121C, mix the egg whites and pour the sugar syrup slowly over de egg whites and continue to mix until the mixture is cooled.  Make little ‘dots’ on the glacage!
