I have a tin, but after one tough and bland attempt it has been sitting in the cupboard for eighteen months. [shame]

I need a madeleine masterclass...

What's the tin? What's a Madeleine master class?

Sorry, was being geeky. grin This. Not that I've actually read it, mind. Anyway, I'm not helping and shall get me coat.

Best recipe I know of and use regularly is Nigella's Proust's Madelines from 'How to eat'.
Perfect every time and I don't even have a proper pan. I just use a mini muffin pan and they come out like little Mexican hats smile

You do need to let the mixture sit in the fridge for at least an hour then let it come to room temp. I usually make the batter up the night before then we have decadent breakfast madelines!

Damn autocorrect taking out all the 'e's!

I didn't know Proust and madeleines- every day's a school day. grin

I just wish someone would tell me about how to make a lovely madeleine.

I think knowing how to make them is probably a lot more useful and will win you more friends than my contribution. grin

Mmmmm Madeleines. DP scoffs the lot when I make them tho.

OP I use a touch more citrus then they recommend, it helps, and I go by this recipe
