How to Make Traditional French Madeleines Mini Cakes

Delicate, soft and buttery, these classic French madeleine mini cakes are easy and quick to bake. 
Here is my step-by-step must-try recipe!

Today I present you the classic recipe for madeleines - the delightful little butter cakes from Lorraine, France! These mini cakes are famous for their pretty shell shape and yummy buttery flavor. The best part? They’re super easy to make and quick to bake.

Imagine: crispy edges, buttery soft inside, and just the right amount of sweetness. They’re so delicious, you won’t believe you made them at home. 

Madeleines are light, airy, and have a texture similar to pound cake, with crispy edges that are just perfect. 

You only need basic ingredients to make them, and a special madeleine pan (here is mine!)

But for best results,  you do need to pay attention to the details. So please make sure to follow my easy recipe, and no skipping steps!

Often thought as cookies, madeleines are perfect with just a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top. If you want to get fancy, dip them in dark chocolate. Yum!

How to store: Madeleines are best when eaten fresh from the oven. They can be stored for a day, but they might lose their wonderful texture if you keep them too long. Also, it's better not to freeze them as they dry out quickly.

Ready to bake some madeleines? Gather your ingredients and get ready for a tasty trip to France, right in your kitchen. Enjoy the baking adventure and the delicious results. Bon app├ętit!
