only the best birthday present was handed over to me at the end of May…un moule a gateau pour les petites madeleines. I have been wanting to make these moist, sweet, buttery treats for such a long time, so finally, it was a real pleasure to give it my first (and best) attempt!
With a spoonful of honey (ok, 2 teaspoons to be exact), a scattering of ground almonds and the zesty peel of a lemon, they were packaged up fresh from the oven and only shipped to Monsieur Lemon Cake in Belgium.
A couple of sneaky nibblers managed to steal a few before they were popped in the post. Seems like a 12-hole tin just wasn’t enough…
