I have always had a sweet spot in my heart (or should I say stomach) for a good buttery Madeleine. A traditional Madeleine is basically a beautiful small scallop-shaped buttery yellow cake. And I too (like the Baked boys) bought my Madeleine pan a few years ago because I loved the beautiful scallop shapes. When I finally got around to making them I absolutely loved these little butter cakes! I was really excited when the Malted Madeleine was next on the docket for the Baked Sunday Morning group, after all, I love malt I love Madeleines so it was a win win situation....right?
Well...perhaps not completely right. I was disappointed that there was no malt flavor at all in these Madeleine...perhaps I am using the wrong kind of malt powder? Don't know.
But they were wonderfully chocolaty and you know I am
crazy about chocolate!
I halved the recipe and am sorry to say, that I did eat my fair share...but for me, those buttery traditional Madeleines can't be beat!
