Matcha Madeleines

After successfully making regular madeleines and chocolate madeleines, I decided to try matcha/green tea flavored ones. The batter was a gorgeous bright green.  Of course, once they baked, they turned a bit brownish. I wasn’t really happy with how they looked after they baked.  I think I still like the classic madeleine the best, but I’m going to keep experimenting with other flavors too.
