  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of non-diary milk

Preparation method

  1. Start with a large mixing bowl and begin to cream together the sugar and the butter substitute until they have turned light and fluffy.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl sift in the flour, adding the poppy seeds, baking soda, baking powder and salt before mixing.
  3. With the creamed sugar and butter substitute mixture from earlier, add the milk alternative, lemon juice, vanilla and egg substitute before mixing well. Once all the ingredients have been thoroughly mixed, stir in the flour mixture and combine thoroughly.
  4. Once all the ingredients have been stirred together, using a spoon, scoop all the ingredients into a pre-oiled madeleine pan before placing into the oven at 190°C for 7 minutes to cook.
  5. When the cookies have cooked, remove them from the oven and sprinkle with sugar and some more poppy seeds before placing onto a wire rack to cool.
