This week, Tuesdays with Dorie group members baked Lemon Madeleines from the book Baking Chez Moi.
Since being gifted with a madeleine pan and the cute little book We Love Madeleines a few years ago, I've made quite a few of these shell-shaped sponge cakes in various flavours - including savoury - using different techniques. But none of them compared to these little beauties in both flavour and texture.
I loved them! They were tender and delicate with crisp golden edges, and their flavour was just as lovely, redolent with lemon, with the glazed ones - my favourites - capturing both the depth of flavour and tartness of the fruit. These were a perfect afternoon treat and will definitely be made again.
