Mmmm – madeleines. One of my favourite French treats and one that I’ve made a few times and written about here on the blog . But I’d never made glazed madeleines until this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe called for it. I’m a big fan, like Dorie, of the glazed madeleines at Blé Sucré in Paris and I was keen to see if I could replicate their taste at home.
The madeleines themselves require a little time – you make the batter and rest it in the fridge (overnight) then you fill the pans and make sure they are chilled before you bake them. Apparently the cold pan going into the hot oven is the trick to getting the characteristic hump – which you can see is still a work in progress for me!
