MADELEINE

These airy teacakes have a very fancy appearance and a classy name and they require the most basic ingredients. Madeleine, or petite madeleine, originating in the Lorraine region in north-eastern France, are small shell-shaped cakes, given to them by tray with shell-shaped depressions. The taste is similar to sponge cake but they have a lighter taste. Traditional recipes includes very finely ground nuts such as almonds but if you are allergic to nuts you could use lemon zest to give it that extra freshness.
