It’s never a good sign when you have to dust off a baking pan.
Back when I laid eyes upon my beautiful madeleine pan, I thought that I’d use it every week at LEAST. The sad truth is that it’s been used twice.
I love you sweet madeleine pan, I swear I do! But you compete with my brownie pans, bread pans, cupcake pans, cake pans, springform pans and cookie sheets.
I have no favorites, I love them all equally.
And to prove it, I am making up a recipe that I missed baking with TWD. And no, it had nothing to do with the fact that they are CHOCOLATE madeleines.
When I set out to make these, I imagined delicate, buttery chocolate cookies perfect for a cup of tea. Instead I churned out HUGE chocolatey cakes that begged for a glass of milk!! Not that I’m complaining…
These were originally to be filled with marshmallow fluff and I would have filled them but I didn’t have any fluff left. I rarely buy the stuff so I thought I’d sub for Nutella. But I was out of that too. WHAT?! No Nutella?! But I digress. I didn’t fill them but I did dunk some in melted chocolate and dusted others with powdered sugar. Delicious!!
PS. Please excuse the pictures, rushing home and taking them at 5:30pm on a cloudy day just didn’t work out too great. Not to mention that I wasn’t photographically inclined either. Ever have those days?
