Wow. These are so easy and so good. I can't believe I've been paying bakery prices all these years.

These Madeleines have the perfect texture and not too sweet. I only found them to taste a bit 'eggy'.

I must be doing something wrong. This is the second time I've tried this recipe (I love madeleines). The taste is too eggy and lacking in the typical flavor I associate with madeleines. There is also not enough sugar - it is hardly sweet. The texture though is where I'm totally stumped. This is much lighter than the store bought ones and not in a good way. I think that is partly because they spread too much. If I try it again, I will definitely use 4 eggs, more sugar and more flour. Sorry this didn't work out, I really wanted to like it! Thank you.

Really great recipe. I do have one recommendation based on my experience with baking madeleines. I bake them at 425 for no longer than 7 minutes and immediately release them from the pan. They come out very nice and moist this way. These are so good.

Very tasty and easy to make. If you do not have a non-stick pan, though, my advice is to lightly flour the pans. Remove the madeleines from the pan immediately after taking them out of the oven. Tap the edge of the pan as you turn them out onto the counter top. You might have to tap a couple of times.

These were pretty good. They tasted a little eggy than I hoped. My boss just adored them so I got some brownie points today... I'll use those for later. Anyway, I think next time I will add both the orange and lemon zest. Thanks!
