I love madeleine but I have never attempted to bake them at home. First of all, I am not a great baker and madeleine is one of those things that doesn’t deserve failure. Secondly, I don’t have a madeleine pan, until yesterday.
I got my pan at the outlet store, for a very low price. I had no more excuses not to make madeleine, plus my elder sister is in town and she loves eating little cakes with her morning coffee.
I did a thorough research for the best madeleine recipe online and finally turned to my favorite food blogs for inspirations. I checked out David Lebovitz and 101 Cookbooks and improvised their recipes to create my very own madeleine recipe.
My madeleines are not perfect, but they are quite good—firm with crunchy edges, with the cutest signature humps! And yes, they are oh-so-good with a cup of hot coffee or tea!
