Madeleines for French Class

It's been a long, long time since one of my daughters has volunteered me to make treats for her class. Seems like only yesterday one of my girls would come home and announce that she had volunteered me to paint scenery, or make costumes, make treats, or chaperone a dance or field trip. Yes, it seems like only yesterday and here she is doing it again - and this Mama is loveing it!
My eldest daughter is taking a French class as a part of her degree work. She was laid off last spring and decided to go back to school to pursue a degree in accounting/business administration. She needed a foreign language credit and since she had taken French since Kindergarten, she thought it would be easy - she is a bit rusty and so is having to work really hard. Tonight they are watching a French movie so she volunteered to bring treats - Madeleines being the chosen sweet.

I posted a recipe last March. They are really easy, only seven ingredients, and not a very difficult process. Just follow the steps and they taste fabulous.

BTW - here is a look at what I see out my window:
ominous clouds

Some things never change! So sweet of you to bake for your daughter.
We had dark clouds all day, and now have had a dusting of snow.

Oooh - those clouds certainly were ominous! On to the cakes - YUM! So you mean I can look forward to getting those surprise requests when my kids are in college?


Heather said...

Oooo, I have a friend coming for the weekend, and it's her birthday. I think I will use your recipe and bake these for her!

I remember those days, too! How nice you are able to bake a "special snack" now! I love it. The madeleines look yummy!!!

I can't wait to try these. I have had a Madeleine pan for years and have not used it yet. I know I will be trying your recipe very soon. Thanks!

Hi! Newly following from Foodie Friday!

We absolutely love madeleines and even have a madeleiline pan, but never make them. I don't know why. I think we'll have to change that over the holidays.

Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Sarah said...

Oh, thanks for the recipe. I'm going to make some of these next week. One of my favorite sweet treats!

Priscilla they look delish and I will try your recipe. Sometimes it is really nice that our children (even grown) want our help!

Love and Hugs,
