Madeleine is not only a womens name... also means a savoury, fine, biscuit-like sweet that is really delicious to accompaign your cup of tea (or of course your cup of coffee).
It´s originary from France and I think that not so many people knows them out of France... The best way to enjoy it is really some minute after it comes out of your oven and the odour is waving all over your flat...

But to bake Madeleines theres is a rub in it : you need a special madeleines baking-tin. (You should be able to get it in a good household goods store....)
So apart the special baking-tin you need:
130 g wheat flour (if possible self raising; if you use normal flour so you have to add 1 teaspoon baking powder)
130g soft butter
130g icing sugar
2 medium to big range eggs
1 dash of vanilla paste (I like the one from NOMU or some liquid vanilla aroma)
1. Preheat your oven to 240 C (believe me it is the right temperature!)
2. Prepare your baking tin by lining it with some butter and flour
3. Mix the eggs with icing sugar
4. Add the flour and the vanilla - blend rapidly all the ingredients together
5. Put about one tablespoon of this prepared mixture in each hole of your baking-tin
6. Put the tin in your preheated oven.
7. After 4 minutes turn down the temperature to 180 C and leave your madeleines baking for another 4 minutes.

8. Now take them out of the oven and try to wait at least some minutes before you start to eat them...with some jam..or with a glass of champagne (instead of the cup of tea...)
