About this recipe: This classic recipe for Madeleines couldn't be more delicious, or easier to make.
PERFECT! I can't stop eating them. They are soooo good. Just be sure to grease and flour your pan generously. I used shortening to grease. Also, this recipe requires at least 10 minutes of mixing with the electric mixer but they are worth the effort. Next time, I might leave out the lemon to see what they would taste like without it. Thanks for a great recipe! - 09 Nov 2008
I recommend using the seeds from 1 vanilla pod instead of vanilla extract and silicon baking tray makes it easier to get the cakes out of the tray. No way does this recipe serve 12! Two of us are eating them faster than I can bake them with a baking tray that makes 9 in batches! - 26 Aug 2012
We're a hit with the kids...left out lemon as had none, but very tasty! - 29 Aug 2014
