I was (a little, ok a lot) late in posting up the last recipe I baked with the Tuesdays with Dorie group and decided to get a head start on March’s suggested recipes.
Have I mentioned before how much I love that the recipes are not complicated and yet they taste great?
This week’s recipe was lemon madeleines. Madeleines are quintessentially French – and made popular by Proust, who, as the story goes, used to dip them in his tea.
Mine turned out with a bump and all! – you should have seen me doing a little jig in the kitchen when I peeked into the oven and saw the golden brown-ness of the madelines and the bumps forming.
They were absolutely lovely eaten fresh out of the oven as I didn’t even bother with the glaze (lack of time again but then again the glaze was optional). I did have some technical issues with my silicon pan as they have developed a curve and some of the batter slipped out and made a mess out of a couple of madelines. Will have to lay out the silicon pan with more care next time – there will definitely be a next time with this recipe!
