Have you had a taste of Madeleines?My new morning addiction. Give it a try. It has that sponge cake taste and lighter than a pound cake. Best with a cup of tea or dip in hot chocolate.Madeleines are made with a genoise batter (sponge) which is a combination of butter, sugar, eggs, flour, and are traditionally flavored with lemon or orange flower water. What makes these little cakes so enticing is that the batter is poured into special oval shaped molds with ribbed indentations that gives them their classic shell shape.
