Vanilla and Lemon Madeleines

Vanilla and Lemon Madeleines

I love making madeleines, they are so simple and yet so tasty. I like to stick to simple flavours, vanilla and lemon madeleines are a favourite. My madeleine tin is a vintage find from France, I love it!


These vanilla and lemon madeleines were as easy to make as fairy cakes, and very tasty.
