My mum made madeleines today even though she is a little sick……
In fact, she went all the way to the Phoon Huat store, which is an MRT stop away, to buy a madeleine pan. She got a nonstick one for about $22 as the normal ones, which cost less than $10, were sold out.
The madeleines taste of honey and vaguely of lemon (my mum added lemon zest). Quite good for a first attempt, but a little on the hard side, and not as soft as the ones from Delifrance.
NB The title of this entry was adapted from the lyrics of the theme song of the cartoon Madeline, which was in turn adapted from the children’s book series of the same name.
