♥ Lemon Honey Madeleine ♥

Such a lovely, chubby, buttery and lemony sea shells.

Madeleines are French style petit sponge cakes. They are traditionally baked in shell shape. In my version, I baked them into these beautiful sea shell, with a little lemon to balance out the sweetness, and honey for a nice fragrance. Thanks Anncoo Journal for the sea shell mould!

I also rested my batter to ensure nice rising, which therefore resulted "belly buttons" on them! But this doesn't matter to me as the method is still very fool-proof.

This recipe is enough to make four large madeline shells like mine. It can be easily doubled to make a whole batch in regular shell moulds. Enjoy with a cup of tea!

  1. It's so cute that you just made 4 madeleines. I guess it's good if you're not sharing them, that way you don't eat too many :)

  2. Gosh! You've made this madeleine beautifully with the sea shell mould. So impressed!
