I had been craving madelines for a bit. So, I was really happy to see this recipe in My Paris Kitchen! Warning: These madelines are insanely delicious! Be sure that you have at least two hours to make this recipe as it needs rising time. You will need a madeline pan. Don’t fill the madeline pan too much, or the madelines will become misshapen. Okay! Here we go.
