Madeleines are just the best little snack to have at anytime of the day. They are traditionally flavoured with orange or lemon zest. Madeleines are very small sponge cakes a bit like pound cake but softer in texture. They have a very distinctive shell-like shape acquired from being baked in shell baking moulds or tins.
This recipe is made with honey which give the Madeleines even more soft texture than usual.
Madeleines are ideal baked on the day. But you can keep them in an airtight container for 5 to 7 days. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months.
You can dip them in different chocolates too or give them any flavour you wish and like..
