My niece loves madeleine. My sister would go to Starbucks (evil!) and buy a bag of madeleines for her. So I thought why not make them myself. Luckily for Xmas I got a $50 gift card to Williams-Sonoma, so I used it to buy a madeleine pan. I had a choice of regular sized or baby sized. I went with the baby sized thinking that it would be cute for my niece to eat tiny madeleine cakes.
I googled for a recipe and TA DA! The 2nd link is a recipe from 101 Cookbooks. I read through the recipe and found it to be amazingly simple. After mixing everything and was reading to spoon the batter into the pan I realized the baby sized pan was too small. I made a big batch of batter and the pan couldn’t even hold a cup of batter. Anyways, I placed the pan into the preheated oven and waited for 9mins. Ding! After 9mins I took the pan out. Each cake was perfectly golden which was a good sign. I flipped all of them out to cool. I couldn’t wait for them to cool and ate 1. Oh it was soooo good. Warm, light, fluffy and the lemon zests were great. The outer edge was slight crispy. Hhhhmmmmm. I am tempted to buy the bigger sized pan.
