  • Summary

    Recipe video above. Madeleines are sweet little French sponge cakes that are as delightful to look at as they are to eat. Flavoured with a hint of lemon and with the signature shell shape, these adorable mini butter cakes make for a lovely afternoon tea, or a pretty finish for any meal. Best served hot and fresh out of the oven. Keep the batter in a piping bag, then 10 minutes in the oven is all it takes!

    • 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp plain flour (all purpose flour)
    • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder ((make sure it's still good))
