Madeleines are one of the desserts that look just as good as they taste. Being known for their soft cake like texture, they originally hail from France and are notorious for their shell-shaped exterior. Traditional recipes call for ground nuts, almonds or even variations of lemon zest for a pronounced lemony taste. However, like most of the things we get our hands on, there are always modern twists on classic favorites. Which is why these Chocolate Madeleines are to die for!
These madeleines are rich with chocolate and almost have a Hostess-like flavour to them, their texture leaning more towards a cake than a cookie. Never-the-less these French inspired chocolaty desserts have a way of connecting with you and not just your stomach. French is the language of love? On the contrary, French food is the language of love. (Thx Une Gamine Dans La Cuisine)
