chocolate madeleines for breakfast

because... why the fuck not?

1 egg - room temp if possible
1/4 cup sugar
splash real vanilla
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 t. baking powder

preheat to 400f
butter madeleine pan. way more fun if done with your hands.
blend egg, sugar, vanilla on high for... 10 minutes.
if you're a real ace, simultaneously double broil (poor girl version - heat-proof bowl over pot of water) chocolate.
when melted add butter. melt that too.
mix the baking powder and flour - fo' reals. if you don't, they will suck.
add yer flour and baking powder mix to the egg mix delicately with a spatula (coming soon, how much i love spatulas).
best part - mix the buttery chocolate. be sure to do this thoroughly so it doesn't look marbled.
spoon the chocolatey goodness into the pan.
bake for 10-12 minutes, or until you smell the chocolate wafting.
immediately turn upside down and tap cakes out onto cooling rack or, hell even your counter.
if you wanna get fancy, you can put powdered sugar on top.
