I had a go at making Madeleines.  They are suprisingly easy to make and delicious. Like many good baking products, they are French, originally from the North East of France.  I read that they don’t keep very well and are best eaten on the day that they are baked.  I have often eaten these in France and thought they might be something worth trying out at home.  It turns out they were.



The recipe I used was from the BBC website available at from the French Chef Michel Roux Jr.  I made the lemon version, which gives the taste a pleasant tang.  You will need a special Madeleine tray for these to cook correctly.  I got a silicon one which works really well.  They were impossible to eat in one day so I did freeze them.  This worked fine and they were defrosted and eaten within a week.

I enjoy making cakes and decorating them for family and friends. I am interested in swapping recipies and techniques with others interested in cake baking and decorating.
