Madeleines

Nothing complements a nice cup of tea like a warm and fragrant madeleine cake. They are not too sweet and have a lovely delicate texture.

I must try your recipe, it looks so good. The recipe I tried before wasn't so good; so I gave up on them. I will try again. Thanks!

I love Madelines...made my first batch of them for a tea last summer, and dipped them in chocolate. They are so elegant and light...perfect for any occasion, but especially for tea. Thanks so much for the recipe...I'll try it tomorrow!

I was just in a Starbucks yesterday and saw some madeleines for sale and thought "Hmm, I think I'd like to make some of these soon." Yours look divine!

Have a wonderful week darling

You know what? I've never made or even tasted a Madeline to my recollection. They certainly are delicious looking. I've been meaning to try them....one day when time allows. Thanks for the recipe though.

Love them! I have a madeleine pan that's a bit lonely. I need to get with it!
