Like little cakes with a citrus perfume, these European darlings are equally delightful as a light dessert with fresh fruit or on their own at teatime.

    I just tried this recipe. They came out horrible! First, they were too lemony. I would definitely ease up on the lemon juice or take it out completely and just use the lemon zest. Now, I don't know if its because I have never used cake flour or the the cake flour that I used was not a good brand or what, but the Madelines were so floury tasting and smelling. Also, 400 degrees was too high for my oven, 375 did the trick. But in any case, I will not be following this recipe again.

    I made these using the petite-size pans - made 75 madeleines. They are just delicious and easy to make. The lemon flavor is perfect.

    Would a set of individual sandbakkel pans work? I have many of those and DON'T make sandbakkels. This looks like a cute recipe to have for many things.
