1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
4 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 cup (scant) finely sifted all-purpose flour
1 Lemon, for zest
Confectioner's sugar, for sprinkling

Heat oven to 350. Brush Madeleine molds with 2 tablespoons butter. (Or use vegetable spray or nonstick molds.)

Beat eggs at low speed, gradually adding salt and sugar. Increase speed as batter becomes light and fluffy.

After about 7 minutes, reduce speed to low and add vanilla. Turn off mixer.

Fold in flour in batches to prevent lumps: Add a batch and turn mixer on for 2 seconds, then off. Repeat until flour is used up.

Add 1/2 cup melted butter to batter using same on-off technique. Do not overbeat. Incorporate stray flecks of flour with a rubber spatula. Scrape 1 teaspoon lemon zest into batter.

Spoon batter into each mold, about three-quarters full. Bake 10 minutes, or until Madi's are firm in center. Immediately turn out onto wire rack and let cool to room temperature.
