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.
