Orange Blossom Madeleines

Makes 16 Madeleines

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
2 large eggs
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Italian honey
1 Tablespoon orange flower water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, cooled, plus more for molds

Special Equipment
One 16-cookie madeleine pan with 3x2" molds

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl until pale yellow and thick, about 4 minutes. Beat in honey, Orange Flower Water, and orange zest (if desired). Gently fold in dry ingredients. Add 5 Tbsp. melted butter; gently fold into batter. Press plastic wrap directly onto surface of batter; chill for at least 3 hours. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled.
Position a rack in center of oven; preheat to 400°. Lightly brush madeleine molds with butter. Place pan on a baking sheet. Drop 1 scant Tbsp. batter into each mold. Bake until golden and a tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 10 minutes.
Remove pan from oven, invert, and quickly knock madeleines out of pan. Serve warm, sprinkle with confectioners sugar (if desired).
