Very easy to make and definately good with ice cream. A real crowd pleaser and so so delicious! Much prettier than the picture too!

Really quick and easy and ever so tasty. Didn't have honey so used golden syrup which works perfectly.

A very simple recipe. I made mini madeleines using a silicon mould and they took 10 mins in the oven. I think the honey is quite subtle, so you can probably get away with it if you have non-honey-loving eaters! Five stars.

Really easy to make and very tasty. I was nearly put off because I didn't have Madeline moulds but I just used paper muffin cups and they worked just as well!

I have just made these. I had no honey so used golden syrup...yummy! The quantity of mixture made 20 madeleine's for me. Easy to follow recipe.

Made these yesterday, using a shallow pattypan tin as I don't have a madeleine one. I substituted the vanilla for 2 teaspoons of very finely chopped lavender leaves - with the honey it was splendid! The recipe was so quick and easy, and the cakes were delicious in texture and taste. We ate them all before they were cold :-)
