I am supposed to be posting my Honey Spiced Madeleines for French Fridays with Dorie today but umm… I made the madeleines one night (so I couldn’t take pictures) and ate them all before morning. And then I just didn’t have it in me to do another batch because hello! I’d already eaten 12 of the suckers!
Before what we’re now calling “The Madeleine Incident” I had planned to make these cheesy madeleines to act as a kind of substitute for garlic bread on pasta night. Oh my goodness y’all, I thought the sweet madeleines were dangerous but these guys… a whole new level of delicious! After my first bite, the only thing I said was “Ridiculous” because there’s really no way to describe how good these are.
I’m typically not a fan of madeleines because the ones you buy at coffee shops (cough Starbucks cough) are mushy and there’s no real flavor to them. Homemade madeleines are an entirely different story. The outside get golden brown and just slightly crisp and you can flavor them however you want!
(If you’re in the market for a madeleine pan, I bought this one and I love it.)
