For 12 madeleines : 

  • 90g unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 75g granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon zaatar
  • 90g flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

For the syrup :

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 capful of rose water
  • Some rose petals for decoration


In a small saucepan, melt the butter and honey over low heat, then let it cool to room temperature.

In a food processor, combine the eggs, sugar, and zaatar. Blend until you get a smooth paste.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl, add the salt, and mix. Then, add this mixture to the previous egg mixture. Blend everything together and add the melted butter-honey mixture. Blend again.

Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (thermostat 6-7).

Grease madeleine molds and evenly distribute the batter, filling each mold two-thirds full (about 1 heaping teaspoon in each mold).

Bake for 9-10 minutes, then let them cool before removing from the molds.

To make the honey-rose syrup, melt 3 tablespoons of honey until it becomes liquid, then add 1 capful of rose water. Soak some of the madeleines in the liquid and sprinkle with rose petals.
