Madeleine's are small sponge cakes with a distinct shell-like shape from being baked in pans with shell-shaped depressions.  These delicious little cakes originated in France and I could only imagine how delicious one would taste from a little french bakery in France.  But since that isn't possible at the moment, why not make your own madeleine's! These are one of my favourite treats to eat along side a warm tea latte.
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  1. Beat the eggs with the sugar, vanilla and half of the milk until thick and light yellow. Add the flour and baking powder bit by bit and continue mixing until smooth.
  2. Stir in the rest of the milk and the melted butter.
  3. Carefully grease your madeleine tray if necessary.
  4. Spoon about two tablespoons of batter into each mold.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes at 375°F. Cool on a rack.
  6. You could flavor your madeleines with different things, perhaps orange or lemon zest. A dusting of powdered sugar would look nice as well.
