Vegan white chocolate glazed chai madeleines are quick and easy to make yourself. What you need is a madeleine baking tin, for example this one*. I find it really pretty and you don’t need to grease it. 

What are the white chocolate glazed chai madeleines based on?

Ever since the first time I had a Masala Chai in an Indian restaurant, I’ve been a big fan. As it’s mostly not vegan, I make my own at home. Fresh ginger, a cinnamon stick, black pepper, cloves and cardamom, some black tea, simmer for 10-20 minutes, pour through a sieve, add plant milk and maple syrup and enjoy.

That taste would be amazing in a christmas treat too, I thought the other day. The result was so tasty, I had to share that with you.

You don’t need to make tea for the white chocolate glazed chai madeleines, the spices go right into the dough. You can use a mortar and pestle or an electric spice mill to grind them up. Or if you have some instant chai tea powder, that will work too. I would use about a tablespoon of that.

Servings 12 madeleines


  • 200 g spelt flour
  • 75 g coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cloves
  • 3 black pepper corns
  • 3 cardamom pods just the seeds inside
  • 240 ml plant milk
  • 80 ml plant oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 80 g vegan white chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa butter*


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/ 356°F.
  • First, gather all your ingredients and prepare them in the right amounts. That makes it so much easier and more fun and you're less likely to forget anything. 
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and spices in a bowl, combine the cup of plant milk, the plant oil and the apple cider vinegar in a second bowl.
  • Then stir until just combined.
  • Pour the dough evenly into the madeleine tin. Bake for 25 minutes and let cool off a bit. Then take the madeleines out and put them in the fridge. They should be really cold when you dip them into the chocolate.

  • Heat water in a pot (don’t boil) and put the white chocolate with the cocoa butter in a smaller pot in the water. Melt while stirring. When the first pieces start to melt, you can switch the heat off. The chocolate should not get warmer than necessary for melting.
