Making My Aunt’s Madeleines




Check out my post on The Kitchn today. It’s all about how to make authentic french madeleines based on a cookbook my family has passed down for generations. The book was originally published in 1897 and the recipes inside are no thrills, get out your bowl and wooden spoon recipes. This one is a classic and always a crowd pleaser.

See the recipe here and have a great weekend!

    Oh! j’ai le même livre (que j’ai racheté neuf, on le trouve encore) et que ma mère avait!
    J’adore votre blog trouvé sur The Brick House. Je le trouve so inspiring! J’ai aussi une chatte Abyssine de couleur lièvre appelé Vaïwen et j’adore le caractère des abyssins. Et j’ai passé mon enfance en Dordogne près de Sarlat. Aussi j’ai trouvé amusant que vos grand-parents aient vécu là-bas!
