About this recipe: These madeleines are the real deal. This recipe gives foolproof step-by-step instructions so that you can make perfect madeleines right in your own kitchen. The sign of a good madeleine is the tell-tale 'hump' on the reverse side of each cake.
If you don't have silicone madeleine moulds, you can use metal moulds. Be sure to butter well and dust with flour.
Used mince pie tins (and SR flour) and the cakes were fine but in need of something else. Spread with jam and they were more interesting. Maybe I need the Madeleine moulds to get better result? - 01 Oct 2016
Never made Madeleines before. Used this recipe and they came out perfect (according to my French husband). Can't get higher praise than that. Thank you for a great recipe! (I used self raising flour as I didn't have any plain four, and omitted the baking powder and salt) - 04 Oct 2015
My first time at making madeleines, they were so easy and simple to make, yummy, have saved this to use again and again - 19 Jul 2015
