If you've never tried madeleines, let me turn you on to them. If you are already a fan, I've got you covered with amazing recipes to make madeleines at home! I'm sharing everything you need to know about these delightful tiny cakes, that are so buttery and scrumptious.
They are little sponge cakes or butter cakes that originate from France, considered a cross between cake and cookie. Madeleines are traditionally baked in a shell-shaped mold and have a light spongy texture, making them the perfect light sweet treat.
Madeleines are traditionally buttery, light, and flavored with vanilla and lemon. However, these tiny cakes are incredibly versatile and as you can see from the recipes listed below, you can flavor them in many ways.
Madeleines use standard ingredients of most cakes and cookies - flour, baking powder, butter, eggs, sugar, and salt. Putting them together is quite simple (detailed recipes below). If you want the scalloped look, madeleine pans are easily available online.
